> Hi Everybody
> 1. I recently installed Debian Stretch
> 2. I have an old (very old?, ancient?,...) dvd, a SONY DVD RW DRU-710A. It
> used to play dvd's and music cd's. After installing Stretch, it only plays
> dvd's.
> I use vlc. When I try to play a music cd, it says
> Your input can't be opened:
> VLC is unable to open the MRL 'cdda:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
> (I can find no log.)
> When I try to mount the cd's filesystem (by mount /media/cdrom0) the
> response is
> mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0
> The only reason I can think of for it not playing music cd's is a missing
> module. I have looked through the lib's and can find no module that would
> appear to be needed.
> Does anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this?
> Thanks
