I've been searching through the archives and found nothing to help me
get Ubuntu to mount my DVD RW.
I have a "NEC Corp CDR 300IB or 3001B" that does fine.... but I cannot
fine a reference to it in the files....
I also have the Optowrite DVD RW Model DD0201 which cannot be mounted.
I've searched but cannot find info on mounting this drive.
