    Ubuntu seems to refer to the CD drive by several different device names, on a test system here in /etc/fstab it's /dev/scd0 and as refered to by the "df" tool and /etc/mtab it's /dev/sr0. BurnInTest is matching the CD to /dev/sr0, so you should check what device name df is using on your system and edit the cmdline_config file to match.

    CDRom test in Linux cmd line mode


    I want to test my CDRom in the command line mode.

    I am using Ubuntu 9.10. I modified the config file and pointed the device to /dev/cdrom. I checked and made sure that this path is correct by mounting / unmounting the cdrom manually. Then I mounted it again before running the test.

    But in the test, everything runs except the CDRom test. When I press 5 to see DVD/CD test, it says:

    Status CD/DVD 0: No Test, Cycle 0:

    Can someone please tell me how to enable the CDRom test?
