Found 19th Mar 2010
I have an Acer Aspire One running Linux when I plug in my external DVD dirve it doesn't do anything how do I get the Acer to recognise it and use it? The drive works fine on my laptop running windows xp.


stupid question but are the usb ports enabled in the bios? i've installed things for a few people with aspire ones in boh linux and xp and the external drive was detected as soon as plugged in,as normal.
