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”
Hi and thanks for suggestions!!
I am trying to rip a music-cd with backgrounds I have made myself.
I have found out that I do not have /dev/sr0 where cd-dvd usually show up. (I have /dev/sg0). CD-DVD does not show up in any gui-apps.
I haven’t used optical media in so long, that the Superdrive on my iMac died ages ago, and I never had missed it lol. I have more burned shite than a forest in California from back in the day. Unetbootin was like a revelation lulz.
I forgot one valid option: bios, and thanks to @PackRat (again) I did put Archlabs on an usb to boot from that. I had troubles booting from the usb. Could not change anything in bios to be able to have usb as boot-option! I ended up downgrading the bios! Now cd-dvd shows in Thunar.
In bios I tried to change boot order but couldn’t. Found it strange. Tried several times. Looked for a bios update but found “urgent downgrade” instead. Applied but was still not able to change boot options. The positive side-effect was that cd-dvd became available. The computer is 6 years old and is working fine except for bios.
