Well, first off, I really want to say that I am sorry for getting some people excited over my sale of my c1000. I found out that the warrenty was still valid and when I tried to respond to PM's on my home computer it wouldn't let me.

My question is this: I know you can use external cd drives with pdaxrom but, are there any tools to burn files and the like cd using an external CD burner? Also, is there any way to watch dvd's from an external dvd player.

Thanks for your time!

i haven't tried burning, but i've used a usb dvd drive and hard drive on mine. usb devices use scsi emulation to access under linux, so watch dmesg logs for sda popping up and its seen your drive when you plug it in.

to view your dmesg (kernel log) log type
CODE
dmesg


mount your drive after seeing it in dmesg and your good to go just like anything else. If you new to linux try
CODE
fdisk /dev/sda
then the letter p to get a partition listing.



then
CODE
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/floppy

to mount it
