  • Assuming that /media/cdrom0/ is the location of CD/DVD-ROM
  • To mount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo mount /media/cdrom0/ -o unhide
  • To unmount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo umount /media/cdrom0/
    I wonder if maybe the DVD is there, but it hasn't been mounted so try this above...usually Ubuntu should pick up the DVD and assign a generic driver. If it isn't there and you cannot mount it, then maybe it's faulty? You need to test it, on another PC.Hopefully this will help.

This will give instructiosn on how to load and install from said USB.

You will need:

After you've made your USB stick, when booting up the computer you wish to install ubuntu on be sure you have the USB stick inserted when powering it on. When the start screen comes up press ESC to enter the BIOS or boot order. Select the USB stick from within the BIOS boot order menu, or the USB stick from the boot options menu.

Load ubuntu, install, enjoy.

Where i find Sony C R X 140 E driver for x p ??? In go ogle i didn't find ... only virus ... please help me !!!


Hello friend
You don't need Sony drivers if you are using Windows !!!!!
Go here to Sony for your your cd player. http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/180
Click on the 'Dos Drivers' and read the words from there ....'NOTE: Windows operating systems have built in drivers to support your Sony CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM drive as a CD-ROM reader. No additional drivers are normally required once Windows is installed and running. However, you will need additional software to make use of CD Writing and DVD Video playback if your drive supports these functions.'

I suggest you re-install Windows XP from installation disks. after backing up your personal files which you will lose.

You mentioned 'driver booster' Yes ONLY ONLY ONLY EVER download drivers from , the Manufacturers site . Sony in this case,

There are lots of rubbish sites offering drivers this and drivers that. THEY ARE ALL RUBBISH !!!!!!! DON'T EVER EVER USE THEM
I cannot stress it enough tell your friends, tell everybody.

As I say , connect up your cd player and then re-install windows xp or whatever Windows version you have. Windows will automatically install its OWN drivers for your player.

Better still friend... buy a more up-to -date dvd r/w combi.player They are really cheap these days.

How to install server ubuntu 10.04 with no flash drive just hard drive??


If you are connected to a network or internet you can do a net install

he network installer lets you install Ubuntu over the network. This is useful, for example, if you have an old machine with a non-bootable CD-ROM or a computer that can't run the graphical interface-based installer, either because they don't meet the minimum requirements for the live CD/DVD or because they require extra configuration before the graphical desktop can be used, or if you want to install Ubuntu on a large number of computers at once.

Hya i want to run ubuntu 10-04 can any one help


Run or install??, on what type of PC???, from what media to what kind of media???, usually you download the .ISO file from the UBUNTU web site, burn it to a CD or DVD (the version suitable for your type of PC) than you BOOT the PC with the LIVE CD you created, and VOILA! UBUNTU is RUNNING... Don't forget grate power comes with grate responsibilities...

I have a dell gx520 running xp home . I want to dual boot ubuntu but the cd rom will not read from ubuntu disk. It readsxp and music cd's ok so it is not the rom at fault


Hello,
Make sure you set the BIOS to boot on the CD rom first. You can set it via the BIOS utility. Usually you press the F5 key and then go to boot options. And then place your CD ROM drive on the 1st boot priority.
Make sure also that your CD installer is working and not from a bad ISO download.

Cd rom recognised as cd audio


They will definately need drivers to be able to give out 100% of the performance.
You definately might have receive a disk while purchased the CD/DVD ROM.
Try that driver once and see the difference.
