Hang in there vectorhp.

An expert will be along soon enough to assist you.  I haven't had your problem so I wouldn't know how to begin to help.

I am not a Vector expert but I could suggest some things to investigate and you could post your results here.

First, what version of Vector do you have installed? (How to determine your VL version)

Also, if you could post the contents of your '/etc/fstab' file, it would help.

Post the output of the following command line:

    ls -l /dev/cd* /dev/dvd*

(Those are lowercase "L"s, not "I"s.)

That information should provide a good start for one of the Vector experts to be able to assist you.
