I'd recommend connecting just one at a time. Check your bios each time
to see if it is: 1) set correct, and 2) recognizing the drive(s). When
booting into U, make sure your /etc/fstab has an entry for the drives.
Example from my fstab:
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0
/dev/scd1 /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0
Also check to see if the drive is being seen at boot. Open a terminal
sudo lshw > lshwmycds.txt
That will run the lshw program and put the output in the lshwmycds.txt
file. It's a plain text file, so you can open it in the terminal:
or text editor.
Then look for the cdrom entry(s) - sample:
description: DVD reader
product: DVD-ROM SD-C2502
physical id: 1
bus info: scsi at 1:0.0.0
logical name: /dev/cdrom
logical name: /dev/dvd
logical name: /dev/scd0
logical name: /dev/sr0
capabilities: removable audio dvd
configuration: ansiversion=5 status=open
BTW: you can name lshwmycds.txt to whatever you want. It's handy to have
one on file & then do another after you add new hardware. That way you
can go back and compare if necessary.
