Asked this before but never got a solution.
Have a DVD drive which works with my laptop running xp but I cannot get it to work with my netbook running linux it will not recognize that it is plugged in to the usb port. It recognises my memory stick in usb port.
Any help appreciated

is the dvd drive self (usb) powered or have its own psu?

could be that the netbook cant provide enough usb juice, do you have a powered usb hub?

Looks like you may need to find the linux driver for your DVD drive. Search for it on google. Make/model Linux driver
