try mounting a data cd, like the installation disks. if that doesn't work check dmesg to see what it says about your drive during boot and post that up here. sounds like you were right the first time and it's not supported

You didn't tell us it was a CDRW DVD drive. SCSI emulation is loading so see if you have a /dev/scd0 or /dev/sr0 device. Then again it might not unless you have the correct modules loading.

Also tell us what modules are being loaded
/sbin/lsmod

Also are you using grub?

sorry everyone for the omission of detail, but i'm wondering how my drive being a CDRW (no DVD -- not sure why that ATAPI info appears in the log) affects its definition and usability as a regular cdrom device? it's still being defined as the ide disk "hdc".....

does the fact that it's a CDRW mean that i need to define it as a scsi device in fstab ?

THANKS for all the help and patience

Do you have any /dev/scd0 or /dev/sr0 devices?

If so then change your fstab.

Just wondering if you have a append = "hdc=ide-scsi" line in your grub config

I'm not a SCSI emulation expert since I only use SCSI devices.

Just for fun if you have cdrecord app installed what is the output of:

cdrecord --scanbus

michaelk, yes i have a scd0 device, but no sr0 device in /dev/ .

my fstab cd line reads thus now...

/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro 0 0

but when i try to mount /mnt/cdrom with a linux data disk in there i get the same ol'
mount: /dev/scd0 is not a valid block device

i'm not sure how to check my grub config to see if i have a append = "hdc=ide-scsi" line there.....


here is the cdrecord output you asked for....
# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J?rg Schilling
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'.


THANKS

Try
modprobe ide-scsi
modprobe scsi_mod

cdrecord --scanbus

I don't know where RH sticks the grub.conf file. Try /boot.

michaelk...thanks for the recent help. here is the output from the list of scripts you suggested running...

# /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi
# /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi
# /sbin/modprobe scsi_mod
# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J?rg Schilling

0,3,0 3) *
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) *
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *

i can now mount a data disk, and burn cd's, and i can even play music cd's !!

THANKS HEAPS everyone for all your help and michaelk espec for his recent assistance.

but i'm curious as to what the problem was...apparently ide CDRW act as scsi devices? what is it about CDRW's that they require this definition?
