CentOS 5.3 Mount Issue


Hey guys, as you all know im a newbie to CentOS.
I Used To Run RH And To Mount My CDROM (Same computer so it should get the drivers)
Now
I used to just need to run this command
First off to get the eject device we run
Code:
eject -n
then get
Code:
eject: device is '/dev/hdc'
Then We Run
Code:
[root@localhost mnt]# mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
We were getting this error before when running that:
Code:
Error: no mount point found
So i created the directory now i get
Code:
mount: no medium found
Im not a computer god> ive used linux for a long time but never had this issue, then again ive never really used CentOS Till now,
So far i love centos this little issue is starting to ruin it though, any help would be great!

Cool

Hi 29t88,

With RH, mount will work without any directory as we mount CD-ROM over /mnt itself. Not very sure about CentOS...

try:
a) mkdir /mnt/test
b) mount /dev/hdc /mnt/test
It should work for you, as it worked for me just now.

Rather than mounting CD-ROM everytime, why don't you make a permanent mount-point fro CD-ROM...by editing /etc/fstab

Cheers,
Kapil

@OP
Are you sure there is a disc in the cdrom drive?

Cancel that > I get:
Mount: block device is /dev/hdc is write protected, mounting read-only Witch is good so i thought it mounted but then i get
mount: you must specify the file system type

Could it be because i burned it with the windows burning wizard?
