been working w/ this for a few days now and just can't get the cd/dvd rom drive mounted. specs below:
Toshiba Satellite 5205-s505
Kernel version 2.4.19
when I try to mount the device via:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
i get the error
mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device
the cdrom drive appears to be at /dev/hdb with a symbolic link from /dev/cdrom. fstab has an entry for /dev/cdrom. I've tried recompiling the kernel with IDE/ATAPI CDROM support built in and as a module, also tried compiling with SCSI CDROM support as well, both built in and as a module to no avail.
Anyone else having this problem, or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks for your help in advance!
