CD-R problem "no medium found"


hey guys
all of a sudden my cd-r says "no media found" when i try to load cd?? it worked a little while ago, just wanna play music, i tried a couple different cd's to. i havent messed with /dev or /mnt since i finally got both my cd-r (/dev/hdd) and my dvd (/dev/hdd) working.
any thoughts?

That error normally occurs when there is no cd inserted in the drive....

If it's a CDR, it's probably using scsi emulation, and isn't hdd anymore. You'll either need to recreate your symlinks:
ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdburner (assuming /dev/scd0 is the new name of your burner)

I don't know if that's a typo, or if this is a combo drive (/dev/hdd) but either way, it would still be the same thing if you are using scsi-emulation.

Cool

Which is perfectly normal behaviour ;)
You *can't* mount audio-CD's ...

ya

ya... there is a probably a really good reason for this but i don't know what it is. i use a command line program called cdplay to play cd's but there are a lot of others out there. probably a lot with gui's. but if you need to test it out, put in an wudio cd and type cdplay. you should hear the cd in a few seconds. to stop it type cdplay stop. type man cdplay for main details. i think it should be included in most distros. hope that helps.
