    Can't Find Knoppix FileSystem

    When booting from floppy, my computer (200Mhz, old thing), cannot find the filesystem on the CD-ROM let alone find what the CD-ROM is. I have no previous experience working with this computer. Is it safe to say this CD-Drive is broken? I can put in a CD and Eject them.... knoppix has been great for other computers with hardware detection...

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Some (lesser quality) cd drives just don't work well with knoppix, most notably, Aopen drives. You may want to try swaping your cd drive with a different one to see if it's the drives fault, then post your results.

    What brand of drive is it?

    I have the same problem, about the "missing filesystem." I bought a newer laptop, a nice Sharp UM30W, but the CD drive is a slow external drive. Do you think that if I found a newer CD drive it would work? Or would using USB 2.0 instead of the internal 1.0 fix it? I'd like to find a solution to this, and I'm hoping it's not just that my laptop is too new... I love the laptop but life with no Knoppix doesn't seem quite worth it now...

    I tried swapping out the CD-DRIVE with another one and it was able to detect it and install. So far so good. Now I just need to find an small IDE hard drive for another older computer that I'm trying to get to work.
