dvdrom, dvdrw, cdrom, cdrw devices missing

Hi All,

This is an error from Ubuntu 8.04 onwards. Many a times - you cant mount your cds and dvds in Ubuntu.

It would throw an error stating "No optical drives found" in softwares like K3b etc.

These below steps will solve the problem...

1. Rename this file to any other file and restart
-> /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules

2. Here is the command:
mv /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules.disabled

Dont forget to restart after this command...

Have a great day ahead,
Ananth S Gouri
