What is a 'block device'
Can somebody tell me what a 'block device' is. The reason i would like to know is because I am trying to mount cdrom by typing the following:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
however I get the following message:
mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device (maybe ! ' insmod driver' ?).
Thanks to all the members who posted a suggestion for this problem, however, none of them worked.
