1.Trying to boot Linux with live CD killed by CD-ROM

I tried to boot Damn Small Linux from a CD but it failed sometime in
the middle of the process. I hit the reset button to start over and now
I cannot use my CD-ROM. It will not boot from the CD drive and even in
Windows if I put in a music CD it makes sounds like it's looking for
something then ejects. Was something of the failed boot saved in some
persistant CD drive storage? How do I get my CD-ROM back from the dead?

5.Sun CD-Rom doesn't like CD-Rs?

Hello everyone,

I have a Toshiba XM-6201B CD-Rom (which IDs as a Sun drive) in a 611 
external case attached to my Ultra 2. It's pretty much new but I've had 
a few problems with it. At first I couldn't boot from the CD-Rom to load 
the OS, but I discovered that the TERM jumper was missing from the back 
of the CD-Rom. I replaced the jumper and now it boots the machine fine, 
but I wanted to use it more generally and sometimes it seems to take 
forever to mount/read CDs. Mostly I use CD-Rs, and I was just wondering 
if maybe this drive doesn't like them? Has anyone else had similar problems?
