I changed the entry in the /etc/fstab file to read:
/dev/dvd /mnt/dvd iso9660 user,fred,default 0 0
I also changed the entry for "cdrom2" to read the same. I can now mount the DVD and read a data cd from it. But when I try to play an audio CD I get the following:
Could not mount device.
The reported error was:
mount: block device /dev/cdrom2 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom2,
or too many mounted file systems
Guys and gals, I do greatly appreciate the help I am receiving here. Without it I would have probably taken my computer out and shot it by now.
