probably an /etc/fstab issue i'd guess, can you mount it verbosely?

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

assuming you have both device and mountpoint.

post your fstab file here.

Hi
The CD Rom won't do anything - either verbosely or otherwise. the recorder will read data cds.
Help!!

You need new symlinks to scd0 scd1 as the drives are now scsi not ide. The original devices as per fstab are links to /dev/hdc or whatever. I can't remember exactly what you need to do, but its in one of the cdrecord howtos.
I just set mine up under RH7 (to burn 7.2 iso for install) I'd just reinstalled RH7- dodgy system needed fixing. Installers often don't spot these drives,which is irritating. I couldn't remember how to change all the links etc, so I removed the cd-rw ide cable, rebooted, shutdown, replaced cable, rebooted, and kudzu set it up. Very easy!

or you can work around with lilo.conf (of course if you are using lilo), suppose your cdrecorder is hdd and cdrom is hdc, so then you added to lilo.conf
append "hdd=ide-scsi", to make your cdrom to read discs change this line to
append "hdd=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi"
save the file and run
/sbin/lilo
it works for me, and there is an adjustment to symlinks,
just run
cdrecord -scanbus
watch the output and locate in /dev directory your drives as scd*
I believe scd0 is the cdrom and scd1 is writer (if the cdrom is hdc and writer hdd), make appropriate symlinks and you're good to go.

Ok.....here it goes again....you cannot mount an audio cd, only data cd's. An audio cd does not have a file system thats why you get the error, you don't need to mount an audio cd to play it, if it won't play then there is something else wrong.

Audio CDs

Hi
That makes very good sense but I used to be able to mount an audio cd using Konqueror and "see" the song files. I don't need to be able to do that but I should be able to do it, shouldn't I?
Maybe I'm misremembering?

I've tried everything here apart from removing the cable - that's tonight's project.

Thanks - I'll keep trying!!

Konq has a built in audio cd browser, it dosn't actually mount the cd but uses the same protocols as xmms would use to display the contents, I use the konq cd browser to rip tracks to .wav when I want to make a "bern's mix" cd.
