I'm running Jessie/sid as my base.

When I type lspci:

When I type lsusb:

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0cf3:3004 Atheros Communications, Inc.

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I can't figure out which device is the cdrom drive.

cat /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info is empty of values.

There isn't even an eject button.

uname reads:

Linux DarthVader 3.16.0-38-generic #52~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri May 8 09:43:57 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any ideas?

  • Which kernel version? – Jodka Lemon Dec 15 '15 at 21:29
  • Is it disabled in UEFI/ROM setup? – Jodka Lemon Dec 15 '15 at 22:08
  • It's not disabled in UEFI ROM. Secure boot is also disabled. The emulation is set to AHCI. – Frank Barcenas Dec 16 '15 at 3:45

Disregard, This version of the laptop I purchased does not come with a CDROM.

    What a way to blow 50RP. – Frank Barcenas Dec 16 '15 at 4:33
  • How did you not notice this when you were running lspci and everything else? – cutrightjm Dec 16 '15 at 5:21
  • @ekaj My dvd drive does not show up in lspci or lsusb. I own a Thinkpad T420. With a drive. My question would be: How did you not see there IS NO DRIVE? – Jodka Lemon Dec 16 '15 at 9:56

    They put a cover on the slot and make it look like it does. But there is no eject button. So you start thinking that its a software driven eject like macs. But no. It does not have a button on the slot because it doe snot have a drive. – Frank Barcenas Dec 16 '15 at 14:29
