Problem with Wine on FC5 not detecting CD drive
I'm a newbie :confused: to Linux and I am having problems running DVD Shrink through Wine on FC5.
Every time I put in a disc it mounts ok in /media, but the name of the folder is the name of the CD/DVD not "cdrecorder". This means whenever I change disc, it changes name!
This is causing problems in Wine, as I can't add the drive in the Wine Configuration. It means adding the drive every time I put a different disc.
fstab contains no reference to media at all. I have tried adding:
/dev/hda /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed,user 0 0
but no change. Apologies if this is a simple problem, but I have tried searching for a solution to no avail! :cry:
Any help gratefully received.
Did you mount your cdrecorder drive first?:rolleyes:
if not try:
'cdrecorder' changes to 'cd-rom' or what?
Got error msg:
mount: can't find /media/cdrecorder in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
By name changing, I mean when a cd/dvd is inserted - it mounts automatically in /media named whatever the label of the cd/dvd is. When no disc is in the drive, /media contains nothing.
I have no problems accessing the discs, but can't set drive location in Wine config.
Here's a way that works to overcome that. Note that these are symbolic links. This goes in .wine/dosdevices. Here:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ray ray 10 Apr 24 11:44 c: -> ../drive_c
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ray ray 10 Apr 24 11:44 d: -> /mnt/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ray ray 8 Apr 24 11:44 d:: -> /dev/hdb
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ray ray 1 Apr 24 11:44 z: -> /
You will need to change these depending on your hardware setup. As you can see, my burner is on /dev/hdb, likely different for you, and I normally mount on /mnt/cdrom. Note the double colons for /dev/hdb.
After you make these links, if your CD is in /dev/hdb, that will appear as a choice in DVDShrink.
THis works on FC 5? Please advise step by step what exactly to type at the terminal. I have never been able to get this to work on FC 5. THanks
Yes, FC5. NOTE! I mount the dvd using mount /dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom.
You may have to adjust to suit your drive layout. The critical parts:
ln -s d: /mnt/cdrom
ln -s d:: /dev/hdb
The rest is unrelated to the issue.
After this is done dvdshrink will allow selection of your drive.
I am very excited about this because my DVD-RW drive not appearing in DVDShrink is the ONLY OUTSTANDING issue I have with FC 5. My DVD-RW drive is device /dev/hdc I use DVDShrink with CrossOver Office 5.1 rather than wine. Will this procedure still work?
I followed this procedure before:
And it did not work. Is this similar to what you are suggesting?
I am stuck on this step:
the command mount works (simplified) like this:
mount -t "type of device" "device" "where to"
that means that you must:
a) have created the map: "/mnt/dvdrw" before you use the command else it will not be able to mount to that point
b) use the option "-t" with an option of what type it is... i.e.: "-t auto" to auto detect the device type.
like this for you:
(first check that the catalogue /mnt/dvdrw exist (else type: "mkdir /mnt/dvdrw"))
[root@localhost alleycat]# mount -t auto /dev/hdc /mnt/dvdrw
This is my edit:
I just had to try out this...
This is what I did, and now it works the way that U want:
First I made the directories:
# mkdir /media/cdrecorder
# mkdir /media/cdrecorder1
Then I made a soft link for my first CDROM device:
# ln -s /dev/hdd /home/erik/.wine/dosdevices/d::
# ln -s /media/cdrecorder1 /home/erik/.wine/dosdevices/d:
then I made one for my second CDROM device (actually a DVD-RW):
# ln -s /dev/hdc /home/erik/.wine/dosdevices/e::
# ln -s /media/cdrecorder /home/erik/.wine/dosdevices/e:
I also made a smal adition in my fstab:
# vi /etc/fstab
and put in the following lines (last row):
/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder1 auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
(but I havent tried out the last thing this yet)
(I switched device letter a bit unlogically for you, but totaly logical for me... hdd is above hdc on my machine)
