Default Debian does not detect SATA DVD drive

Hello,

I installed a SATA DVD drive (Plextor PX-880SA) on my dual-boot system (Windows XP Pro and Debian Lenny). When I boot Linux, fsck fails. Here is the relevant portion of the log file:

Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: Checking file systems...fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)

Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: fsck.ext2: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sdb1
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: /dev/sdb1:
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2

Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: filesystem.* If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:

Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010:**** e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010:
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: /dev/mapper/galan-home: clean, 242236/9166848 files, 16838862/36637696 blocks
Thu Jan* 7 16:39:14 2010: fsck died with exit status 8


I can control-D and the system boots normally (but with no DVD drive). Would appreciate help in getting Debian to recognize my DVD drive.

Thanks!
Carlos

Hello,

Edit your /etc/fstab
You must disable fsck check on cdrom.

Examle:
/dev/sdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

Last digit of every mouting line controls fsck. set value to 0 if want to
disable fsck.
