    Fine, Here is it.

    fatal Error occured - LiveData not found searching for BT directory. You are using an unsupported boot device(e.g SCSI or PCMCIA cd-rom)
    Try to copy the directory BT from cd/USB to your harddisk. For example, to /mnt/sda1 in linux or C;| in windows. Then boot again.

    Something went wrong and we can't continue. THis should never happen. Please reboot your computer with ctrl + alt + delete.

    I warning the error message is sucks because its say this will neer hapen but it happen to me. Unlucky or other reasons.

    By the way, thanks for any help and recommendations.

    you need to identify the exact model of drive, then do a google search and see if it has any Linux drivers at all, at which point we can help identify whether they are included in BackTrack.... or even help you tailor the live CD and add them.

    If there are no Linux drivers for it you may be out of luck, though.

    I will google my DVD driver and check whether the model/driver is included in the backtrack 's kernel.

    Thanks for your valuable information and opinion.

    Default same problem

    hello everyone,

    I am having the same problem. I'm very new to linux but I know my way around at least a little bit.

    I have a pcmcia toshiba pa3246u dvd drive that connects to my toshiba portege 3500 with a freecom cardbus cable (16bit).

    I've scoured the forum for a couple days and I can't figure out how to solve the problem. I'd really appreciate any advice. I've looked for the freecom cable drivers because that what seems to get some people running.

    I obviously can't boot with nopcmcia because I need to boot off the live cd.

    I think I found a windows driver for the freecom cardbus, if that would help. The only problem is that I'm not sure how to test it because no matter what I've done, windows still recognizes the card. But worth a try if there is a windows driver wrapper.

    I'm just frustrated, I want it to work on this machine.

    I feel like I'm leaving information out. I'll update if I remember. Thank you for your help.
