Check the front of your computer and make sure someone didn't steal it? :POriginally Posted by wader
No. The drive will only show if there is a cd in the drive and the drive is mounted.It doesn't show in the file manager.
KDE or GNOME? Other? Unless automounting is disabled when you place a data cd in the drive the file manager should popup showing the contents of the drive. If this isn't happening, then at a shell prompt type: mount /mnt/cdrom
This is of course assuming your cdroms mount point is /mnt/cdrom
