DVD-ROM drive support ?

Post by Dave Phillip » Fri, 25 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I'm helping someone determine what components in his planned system are
supported by Linux. He's fine with everything except for a DVD-ROM
drive. Here's his original post:

"The drive is a Toshiba drive and the decoder board is from STB and uses
a media processor developed by Chromatic Research.
I don't  really except this to be supported as DVD drive I just want to
that it wont create any problems when using it as a CDrom drive."

Can anyone tell me if he can use this drive as he hopes to ?

I'm also intersted in a support for DVD reader-decoder board since I
have a Creative PC-DVD, I would like to see working under linux.
