mount and umount
 
i am having trouble with this whole mount and umount process.....I put a CD in and then mount /mnt/cdrom....then when i try and switch to that directory it gives me a Input/output error......when i umount /mnt/cdrom and then change it will let me go to that directory....When i do it with floppy it works fine but cant get into cdrom directory.... i know the cdrom is working because i can listen to cd's in xmms.What am i doing wrong??? -thanks

Audio CD's normally aren't mounted, simply played. That's also true with DVD's, usually.

Cool
