mount problems for cdrom


Hello all,
I have just installed Conectiva 10 and am having major problems with mounting cdrom drives, I can't. I have searched google and tried every piece of advise that I could understand and yet nothing seems to work.

I just re-installed Conectiva because I really messed up my /etc/fstab file and forgot to write down what it was origally. When I try to mount the cdrom in terminal it just hangs. I am ussing the command mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom and it just sits there with a blinking cursor. My DVD rom drive does not seem to be getting accessed at all (no blinking lights).

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks,
Dave

Have you confirmed that your cdrom is the primary device plugged into IDE1 ? (checked the jumper etc.)
Does your BIOS report the device as the master on the second IDE ?

OK, so you would expect your cdrom to be at /dev/hdd.
Does your fstab contain an entry linking these? If so, you should be able to just
mount /mnt/cdrom

The mount command in your example may have needed to specify a filesystem type, eg:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
