[ubuntu] Toshiba Qosmio optical drive issues

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on this laptop: http://www.linlap.com/wiki/toshiba+qosmio+x305 Now my optical drive won't open when the operating system is booted (however before the OS boots it opens just fine) and while the drive can read the files on a disk I'm trying to play a DVD and it's not working for me. What should I do? (Hardware)
