Ubuntu not recognizing disk drives

Asked by Jacqie Taylor on 2012-07-30

I do not have Windows, but I have a Windows disk that I'm trying to put on my PC. When I got my PC, it had Ubuntu. I'm a single parent of 4, and I'm trying to use my PC for additional income. Most of what I need is more compatible with windows & I don't have time to learn a new operating system.

Ubuntu is not recognizing either of my disk/cd/dvd drives. I've tried system & computer settings & also tried to download any new drivers, but nothing is working. Please help....I would greatly appreciate it.

So are you wanting to install Windows as the only OS?

Yes, only Windows would make life so much simpler for me :)

Then how is this an Ubuntu issue?

So sorry...I'm not very computer literate AT ALL. Everything just seemed
extremely easier when I ran on Windows OS in the past.

And how long have you used Windows?
