Re: can't mount my dvd rom drive

Is this a combo drive? What command are you using to mount it and what does your fstab line look like?

Re: can't mount my dvd rom drive

/dev/cdrom         /dev/cd     iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide
/dev/cdrom        /mnt/dvd  udf    ro,user,noauto,unhide

as a user i'm using:
mount /mnt/dvd

then tried:
mount -t udf /dev/cdrom /mnt/dvd

when the above didn't work. both return the mount: No medium found error.

its not a combo drive, just a dvd drive.

Re: can't mount my dvd rom drive

/dev/cdrom /dev/cd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide

that should be /mnt/cd not /dev/cd.
can you do

mount /dev/cdrom

? That should autoselect the right fs.
If its a music cd it can't be mounted. You'll have to open it up in a music player.

Re: can't mount my dvd rom drive

I guess if its a music cd although I don't know if thats possible on a dvd. Is it still not mounting the dvd? What info do you have on it?

Re: can't mount my dvd rom drive

Shazbot..i know what happened now. My dad took the dvd drive out of this one and put in a regualr cdrom I think. Wierd that on boot up it still detects a dvd rom, but I can read data cd's. Put a dvd in it and tried reading it through mplayer but get can't open /dev/dvd, and I can't mount the drive with the dvd in there, so pretty sure that's what happened.
