CDROM: mount: /dev/hdc does not exist
I'm using Debian testing distro kernel build 2.6.12-1-686. I am having an issue whereby attempting to mount my CDROM, gives me
mount: special device /dev/hdc does not exist'
Dmesg identifies it as:
Probing IDE interface ide1...
hdc: SONY CD-RW CRX230ED, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
After looking in /dev for hdc, I find in fact it dosen't exist. After looking in /dev for /media/cdrom0, I find no evidence of that, nor of any /media directory, nor of any other cdrom entries (scd0, etc)
So, I tried to create the device nodes in /dev with sh ./MAKEDEV -v scd-all. It returned:
create scd0 b 11 0 root:cdrom 0660
create sr0 -> scd0
create scd1 b 11 1 root:cdrom 0660
create sr1 -> scd1 (etc, etc, etc)
Going back to /dev, I find they still don't exist. So, I do a sh ./MAKEDEV -v hdc, and again same result, but alas no device node.
So I'm at my wits end here and need someone who hopefully has a clue what this could be. Any help is appreciated.
