Hi Best Forum!
I have a typical “oldtimer” problem!
My Archlabs system can not find/use the cd/dvd unit in this HP-probook laptop.
I started with using Asunder. It gave "error: couln’t open /dev/sr0.
I changed to sg0 (in prefs) and same result.
dmesg | grep CD-ROM gave nothing
dmesg | grep DVD-ROM gave nothing
cdrecord dev=/dev/sr0 -checkdrive gave “cdrecord: File or catalogue not found. Cannot open ‘/dev/sr0’. Cannot open or use SCSI driver”
cdrecord dev=/dev/sg0 -checkdrive gave “Device seems to be: Generic CCS Disk.
cdrecord: Sorry, no CD/DVD/BD-Drive found on this target”

I did also do “cdrecord dev=help” and it gave a long answer. The thing that caught my eye was this:
“Open via UNIX device: not supported”
Does that mean I have an “all-windows” unit that I have to flash to use in Linux?
Thankful for hints!!
