ok, so now I changed the /etc/fstab line:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
To look like this:
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
Now, when I run cdrecord -scanbus I get the error message:
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
and I can't even mount the cdrom drive anymore!!!
I get the following errors:
# mount /dev/cdrom
mount: can't find /dev/hdc in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
# mount /dev/scd0
mount: /dev/scd0 is not a valid block device
audio CD's still play, though this change seems to have been for the worse overall. I'm undoing the chagnes to fstab until I find a better fix
