CD/DVD drive mount problems

for some reason Arch refuses to see/mount my CD/DVD drive, I have a Sony PCG-F350 laptop (PII 366, 192 Ram, CD/DVD combo drive), I think I have the fstab configured properly, any suggestions?

# 
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#
# <file system>        <dir>         <type>    <options>          <dump> <pass>
none                   /dev/pts      devpts    defaults            0      0
none                   /dev/shm      tmpfs     defaults            0      0
tmpfs                  /tmp          tmpfs     defaults            0      0

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cd   iso9660   ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/dvd  udf       ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0
/dev/floppy/0          /mnt/fl   vfat      user,noauto             0      0

/dev/discs/disc0/part2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/discs/disc0/part1 / reiserfs defaults,noatime 0 0

And thanks in advance, you guys are always a great help!

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

well, it depends on what you're trying to mount. if you've got an audio cd, it won't work. *runs to go see if a video dvd will mount* ok, you can mount a video dvd.

your mount points (/mnt/cd and /mnt/dvd) must exist first before you mount them too! that's a common mistake.

if that doesn't help, tell us what you're trying to mount, what you're typing in to mount it, and what the exact error msg is smile

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

The error konqueror gives me is this:

mount: mount point /mnt/cd does not exist

Does that mean that my mount points don't exist?  And if so how do I make them.

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

Simply create /mnt/cd yourself...
sudo mkdir /mnt/cd (or use root console instead of sudo).

Also, replace the fstab lines

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cd   iso9660   ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/dvd  udf       ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0

with

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cd   auto   ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0

or even, if you use udev and not devfs,

/dev/hdb    /mnt/cd   auto   ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0

or, if you use udev/dbus/hal at startup, delete the lines completely and let fstab-sync autocreate them (the new mount point will be under /media ).

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

I made the entries and this is my new error, what did I do wrong?

Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

What kind of medium is it? (e.g. audioCD's cannot be mounted, as they contain no filesystem).

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

try making the two entries for your cd drive one entry. change the filesytem to auto.

 /dev/cdroms/cdrom0  /mnt/cdrom   auto   ro,user,noauto,unhide 0   0

ooops... didn't see your post scarecrow.

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

Thanks!  I have it working, despite the fact that I can't acces audio discs outside of root, but that is another post!

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

Did you added your user in the optical/audio group? If not:
# gpasswd -a  ryujin audio
# gpasswd -a  ryujin optical
where ryujin is the user name.

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

Easiest way to access, playback and eventually rip an audioCD with the current KDE is via konqueror and "audiocd:/" in the address bar. And yes, your current user must belong to the above two usergroups.

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cd   iso9660   ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/dvd  udf         ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0

and don't forget to change the second one to ...cdrom1 - both set to cdrom0 won't probalby work

Re: CD/DVD drive mount problems

Anyway Ryujin, I suggest you change from DevFS to Udev (This month linux says "bye DevFS support")
