Unhappy It is impossible to mount cdrom1 or 2 in SUSE 8.1 Pro


Hi,

I have tried several command lines to launch the cdrom but in vain.
I also have created the directory "cdrom1" and "cdrom2" in the "/mnt" but nothing to do!


When I type in the following command line:

"mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom1" ( or "mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom1 )

I receive:

"/dev/cdrom: Imput/output error
mount: you must specify the filesystem type"

so after "linux:~#"

I have put "mount -o ro -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom1"

and I receive again bad results:

"wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom or too many mounted file systems ( could this be the IDE device where you in fact use ede-scsi so that sr0 or so is needed? )"

I'am frustrated and confused!

Could you post your /etc/fstab file so we can have a look?

Similar problem here

I have a similar problem with a "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom or too many mounted file systems", but i think i know why it's started happening to me at least - i had a cd mounted, tried to eject without unmounting, so in konqueror i put the folder called "cdrom" into the trash. Now i can't mount a cd without getting the same error message. It won't let me restore the directory to /dev as it says there is already a file (not a dir) in /dev called "cdrom". How do i fix things so i can mount cds again?

Cheers,
Chasin_h

Here's my /etc/fstab file in case it helps...

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

Cheers,

chasin_h:
If all you did was delete the folder then you can recreate a new directory i.e. mkdir /mnt/cdrom. I don't use the trash bin but can you restore it to /mnt?

jjay02:
Your fstab shows the mount point for the cdrom as being /media/cdrom. Have you tried

Mount /media/cdrom

Are you trying to mount an audio CD or a data CD? You can only "mount" data CDs. Audio CDs are not mountable.

Also, "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom1" seems to be the wrong mount point. According to your /etc/fstab, your CD-ROM is mounted at:

/media/cdrom

Perhaps try:

mount /media/cdrom

Hope this helps

chasin_h, you could probably just put your CD back in your drive, the open a terminal and type:

umount /mnt/cdrom

or

umount /dev/cdrom

I've done that before accidentally, and umounting it solved my problem. Hope this helps

Oh yeah, make sure you've adjusted the volume levels on your multimedia players as well.

Thanks Texicle, just mounted a data cd successfully... Why is that the case though, that audio cds don't mount? And can you help me to get mp3s playing in XMMS?

Cheers,
chasin_h

Audo CD's do not have an associated filesystem. RH 8 does not include the XMMS plugin for MP3's if thats what you are using.

Thanks, so is there an mp3 player that comes with rh8.0? Or can i get the plugin for xmms somewhere and how is it installed. I had a copy of mandrake a few years back which had a version of winamp included which could play mp3s ok. Why have they removed the ability to play them? Is it some issue over rights or something? Thanks in advance,

chasin_h

You could probably do a search on G4L aka www.google.com/linux for the XMMS plugins to allow for mp3 playing. I guess RH didn't want to ship it ready made for mp3's due to the controversy over them. I don't know for sure. There's got to be an rpm out there somewhere. I saw someone once mention rpmfind website. I don't know the exact URL, but a search on G4L will probably yield good results. Hope this helps.

Found the mp3 plugin on the xmms site. Music playing fine now. Seems it was a rights issue or something along those lines that stopped it shipping with the plugin.

Cheers,
