Stupid Question: How to unmount cdroms


This is cakewalk for you guys, How do you unmount a CD-ROM in RedHat8? I can mount any type of filesystem I can plug into my computer, but once it's mounted, I don't know how do unmount it..... I can't even press the eject button on the drive (?) I must be missing something big-time, because I have virtually turned everything upside down on my box trying to figure out how to unmount things.

OK I have figured out how to unmount CD-ROMs, now I ask this: How to mount a card reader? This I do not know how to do. I'm wondering do I have to restart my box so that it will detect it, or is it like windoze, where it is PnP?

Unmout cdrom: "eject" at root console.

Mount card reader: ??? I have no idea, especially considering your using Red Hat. How does the card reader connect to the PC? (this is important) Is it USB, internal, firewire?

There is a command called “mount” & “unmount”
I guess the usage is “mount /cdrom” or “unmount /cdrom”

Try it !

Cheers !

OK I have found out how to mount/unmount the cardc reader. A HDD is listed as /dev/hda1, hda2, hda3... A card reader is listed as /dev/sda1, sda2, sda3... Anything common here?

Sounds common. I have to mount/unmount my USB MuVo like this.

Congratulations of fixing your own problem!
