CD Rom & Floppy Mounting


I try to mount the cdrom with mount /mnt/cdrom and comes back and says it can't find the cdrom in the mnt directory. Any ideas.

hi there
to mount cdrom

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

here the contents of ur cdrom will be mounted in /mnt/cdrom

same goes for floppy also

mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

in both cases u should have a directory named cdrom and floppy in /mnt
or u can mount thes devices to a different location

regards

Mounting CDRom & Floppy

When I use the command mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom. It comes back and says mount: block device /dev/cdrom is wrote-protected, mounting read only
mount: mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist. Says the same for the floppy mount.

hi
this line is ok
"mount: block device /dev/cdrom is wrote-protected, mounting read only"

now as i told u need to have a directory at the location where u want to mount so

mkdir /mnt/cdrom
mkdir /mnt/floppy

and then again mount ur cd rom

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

regards

Debian usually uses /media as it's mounting directory.

My CD drives are /media/cdrom0 and /media/cdrom1
