Welcome to the ITRC Forums..

So Rohit, you can always check if there is anything in the DVD Drive or not by "diskinfo":

# diskinfo /dev/rdsk/c1t3d0
SCSI describe of /dev/rdsk/c1t3d0:
vendor: HP
product id: DVD-ROM 305
type: CD-ROM
size: 0 Kbytes <<=====
bytes per sector: 0
# mkdir /dvdrm
# mount /dev/dsk/c1t3d0 /dvdrm
/dev/dsk/c1t3d0: I/O error <<=====

Regds..


Mine is also empty :)
