View Full Version : Optical Drive Detection
8th July 2006, 03:06 PM
I have 2 optical drives on my computer, one is a DVD ROM and the other is a DVDR/RW dual format single layer burner. I was wondering is there a way to make a permanent link between /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd and my DVD ROM drive because as it stands now it switches between these 2 drives every time I boot up Fedora Core 5. Basically I just want the DVD ROM drive to handle all of my audio CD and DVD playing. Is there any way I can do that?

can you tell me details of your PC & jumper settings of both drives???
Make drive you want to get first as secondary master & other secondary slave.I hope this will solve the issue.

I have tried this before and it didn't work. Is there a way I can create a symbiotic link using a terminal command line or something.

I have a similar problem. I have CD/RW as Sec. Master, and DVDROM as Sec. Slave. Fedora is autodetecting the DVDRom if I put in an audio CD, but it doesn't autodetect a data disk in the CDROM. I am putting in linux data disks, and the drive blinks etc. but no desktop response.
