Re: Etch Install fails to detect DVD within Install stage

On Tuesday 17 April 2007 00:19, Emmett Sutton sent this for all our perusal:

>---} Why oh why!!!
>---} It detects fine with Sarge DVDs. It seems Etch installer fails to load

This may be no help at all, but I had a problem with Etch detecting an 
external CDROM when it went through a USB hub. Connected directly to the USB 
port in the laptop, it was detected and recognised.

Religion is not to go to God by forsaking the world but to find Him in it. Our 
faith is to believe in our essential oneness with Him. "God is in us and we 
in Him" must be made the most fundamental faith of all religions. -----------
