data cd problem

I need to move some data from a cd to my harddrive. (Specifically to play Neverwinter Nights.) But I can't access the cdrom. (dev/cdroms/) I tried this as root with MC but seem to have forgot what to do.

I burn cd's all the time and play cd's all the time without any problems if this relates to the problem at all.

Cordially,
S. Barret Dolph

Re: data cd problem

/dev/cdroms/ is a directory created by devfs - your actual device is something like /dev/cdroms/cdrom0.

What's in your /etc/fstab for your cdrom?

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0     /mnt/cdrom   iso9660      ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0

this is what is there.

Re: data cd problem

I burn cd's all the time and play cd's all the time without any problems if this relates to the problem at all.

to burn cd's and play audio CD's doesnt require you to mount the media.

have you explicitly mounted the CD using such as

mount /dev/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom

Also check that the command you are invoking in MC is the copy and not move command.

If you try and move  the media, the program will not be able to remove the original files (read only CD) , and may generate an error and not even attempt to copy the files over at all.

Re: data cd problem

I think Kern meant to say

mount /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom

and you could also try it wth the verbose flag

mount -v /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom

for more output. Either way, check your logs for anything interesting.

Re: data cd problem

Thanks and I found the problem was that my fstab and mount didn't match. I looked at it several times and didn't see it at all. I guess I have to find a better way to look at these things. (Being dyslexic) But thanks for the help. Now I pretty much understand the udev way of doing things.
