Mount cdrom


How do I mount my cdrom?

Tried this:

mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

got this:

mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist

Last I did this I wrote something including cdrom0 and it worked.

just open up konqueror (if in KDE) or Epiphany (if in gnome) and type this in the adress bar: /mnt/ then it will show a list of your ide devices, can you see your CD rom drive?

If you are trying to mount an IDE cdrom drive it is usually located at /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd, if you are trying to mount a SCSI cdrom, it is often found at somewhere like /dev/sr0 so just replace /dev/cdrom with one of these to suit your need.
Hope this helps.

Suceeded First I thing I tried was to mount doing this:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom but then I got mount: special device /dev/hdc does not exist

The solution was:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom

Oh, I really like Crux.. or something
