CD-ROM problem with Ubuntu

By Hodsocks
Dec 8, 2006
  1. I have been asked the following question:

    "After recently transfering my OS from Windows to Ubuntu, my CD Rom is totally inactive (no usual flickering light), with message:-

    mount.special device/dev/hdc does not exist"

    Not being a user of this OS I thought I would ask you more knowledgeable guys, any suggestions?

    Looks like the CD-ROM is not found by the OS (anymore). Is it still recognised by the BIOS?
