Problem Mounting Music CD's under apt updated Knoppix (hd installed)


Hi all

I just installed Debian via a Knoppix cd.... and I am having some difficulty in mounting my cdrom drive. I want to use it for music cds... and this is where the problem is. I can mount data cd's with no problem what so ever.... but when i try to mount an audio cd (the cds i have tested are metallica- reload [legit copy] and staind - dysfunction [burned], same result for each.....

here is my command line output

Code:
root@RSWLinux:/mnt# mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/cdrom: Input/output error
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
here is my /etc/fstab

Code:
# /etc/fstab: filesystem table.
#
# filesystem  mountpoint  type  options  dump  pass
/dev/hda1  /  reiserfs  defaults  0  1
/dev/hda2  none  swap  sw  0  0
proc  /proc  proc  defaults  0  0
/dev/fd0  /floppy  vfat  defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022  0  0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
/dev/dvd /dvd  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
/dev/cdaudio /cdaudio  iso9660  defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto  0  0
# Added by KNOPPIX
/dev/hda3 /mnt/hda3 auto noauto,users,exec 0 0
floppy and dvd do not exist.... hda3 is just my giant store crap directory


thanks in advance

There is no need to mount audio CDs. Just play them.

I tried what you said... and it is not quite working.....

according to /etc/fstab it should be at /cdaudio... i pop in a cd and go there... nothing... i refresh still nothing... i try to mount and get this....


Code:
root@RSWLinux:/home/shane# mount /dev/cdaudio /cdaudio/
/dev/cdaudio: Input/output error
mount: block device /dev/cdaudio is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/cdaudio: Input/output error
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

As I said, audio CDs do not need to be mounted. Put them in the drive, open a CD player, and play the CD.

Only data CDs need to be mounted.

I had the same experience and tried with KsCD to play a cd and it doesn't give any sound at all but no error messages either. My soundcard seems to work fine because I can play mp3 using XMMS and I can hear the system sounds.
