CD & DVD Drives

I can't seem to mount my cd drive. When I try I get this error messages:

Mount: Wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdroms/cdrom0, missing codepage or other error.

I do have a cd in the drive and it is listed in /etc/fstab.

Also how do I add a mount point for my dvd drive, it is separate from the cd drive. In fstab, /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 is listed for both drives but when I try to mount a dvd it always say No media found. I think it's setup for a dual combo drive.

Any ideas on fixing this?

Thnx.

Re: CD & DVD Drives

can you post the contents of /etc/fstab? And what position is the cd-rom and dvd-rom on the cable?

Re: CD & DVD Drives

Here is a copy of my fstab file below and my cd burner is on the second controller as master and dvd burner is the slave.

#
# /etc/fstab: static file system information

/dev/hda5 /mnt/data vfat users,rw,umask=000 0 0

I tried changing the dvd to /dev/cdroms/cdrom1 but I get message no device created.

Thnx.

Re: CD & DVD Drives

ok first make sure you're in the optical group:

gpasswd -a username optical

and reboot.

Mount needs the folders already created from what you have specified in /etc/fstab. So if you haven't already, make them (/mnt/cd and /mnt/dvd/).

cdrom0 - the 0 means master and a 1 would mean slave. Also, if udf does not work (it never did for me with a combo) change it to iso9660. So, I would change

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

to

/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cd iso9660 user,noauto,unhide 0 0 
/dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/dvd iso9660 user,noauto,unhide 0 0 

now if you do

mount /mnt/cd

it should work.
If you still have problems try changeing the nameing scheme to udev (/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 ==> /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd for the dvd). But it should be linked anyway.

Re: CD & DVD Drives

I've tried all the suggestions and still get the same error message. This has got me confused on why it's not working.

I added my user to the optical group, changed from /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 to /dev/hdc. I've tried mounting it as regular and root user, and same error.

Thnx.

Re: CD & DVD Drives

Did you remember to do:

mkdir /mnt/cd
mkdir /mnt/dvd

Yes, those where created when I installed AL. Everything seems to have been setup find, it noticed I have a cd burner & dvd burner but it didn't create a second device for the dvd drive. (/dev/hdd).

Thnx.

Re: CD & DVD Drives

Yes that was the problem for cds, at first I had a audio cd in the drive but now with data cd it works fine.

But now I need to create the dev for the dvd drive. I don't have a /dev/hdd or /dev/cdroms/cdrom1.

Any suggestions?

Re: CD & DVD Drives

for CDs you don't have to mount them. do you have /dev/dvd or anything?

thanks. using /dev/dvd solved the problem.

Now everything with audio/video is solved except for my sound is very very low. I can't seem to get the volume to play loud enough to hear. All mixers are turned up.
