I just installed Blag 19999.00081 and I like it a lot. The one problem is that if I try to mount anything in my DVD-ROM drive, I get the error :
mount: No medium found
This happens whether I'm logged in as root or as a user (cbw). When I put an audio CD into the drive, CD Player reports that the drive is open. In each case, when I put a disk into the drive, the LED comes on and the disk spins and then nothing. I also have a CD writer which seems to be working fine and can mount/read all the disks I've tried.
The hardware browser correctly identifies the two drives :
JLMS XJ-HD166S Device /dev/hdc
SONY CD-RW CRX255E Device /dev/hdd

I tried changing the ownership of /dev/hdc to root.disk and changing the permissions, but it didn't make any difference. Rebooting the machine resets the ownership/permissions, I'm not sure where this happens.
It occurs to me that this might be a hardware problem, which is just coincident on my installing Blag, but I'm hoping I've missed something.
Sorry for the long posting, but I wanted to give as much detail as possible. Any help would be appreciated.
