Question regarding cdrom names


Hi All,
I am still a newbie when it comes to debian and linux in general. But from what I see so far I love it.

I do have one problem I can't figure out how to straighten it out. I recently installed Sarge x86 on a machine with two dvd roms (2 rw). Every thing was okay until I decided to remove one of them. Now when I open up my desktop computer it says I have one cdrom and it's name is CD-CROM 1. But when I drill down via the desktop into media it says it's name is cdrom0.

Can this be corrected? Thanks I appreciate your time in advance for trying to help me.

Randy

I'm not sure this is a problem which has to be fixed....

Try deleting all the mount points in /media and re-booting. Put in a CD and see how it automounts.

Tried that and then it would not even let me mount it as cdrom0 since it did not exist under /media

OK, you should be able to make a new mount point---just call it /media/CD.

Then see if you can mount with:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom0 /media/CD
or maybe /dev/cdrom1?? Try looking in /dev to what is listed there.
I think a CD has to be in the drive for this to work....

BUT--what happens if you just insert a CD? Does not automatically mount?

In parallel, I need to try some things......

OK--more info:

On my system (Mepis), if you insert a CD it automounts to /media/hdc--even though there is no corresponding entry in /etc/fstab.

If I then umount hdc, I can manually mount using:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /media/hdc (or any mount point)
But, I can NOT mount /dev/cdrom

If I umount and then delete all the mount points in /media, and then re-insert the CD, it auto-mounts and re-creates the /media/hdc mount point.

Please don't ask me to explain what is going on......
