Trouble mounting devices


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1.../snapshot1.png

That is what I get when I use a file browser to try to access my CDrom. I was trying to play music through it, and thought it was a soundcard problem, but I tested my soundcard (an app that came with fedora core 2) and It worked fine.

On a side note, this is the same error message I get when I try to mount my second hard drive.

Any ideas?

make sure these devices are listed in your /etc/fstab

Both CD drives are listed. My second HD doesn't show up. I haven't been able to mount it.

If you read the last couple posts in this thread. You'll see that I had no luck getting to my ntfs files.

I was able to access them in mandrake linux though. And are you sure the cdrom is damaged? I can put a CD in and ksCD comes up and even recognizes the disc using CDDB but will not play it.

Re, the cd, check it in another computer. I don't think it is a bad block, it would have mounted and spewed errors during play if it were.

To get NTFS support you have to recompile your kernel.

Post your fstab

My fstab:

Code:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda2               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1             /mnt/cdrom1             udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
Do you think I could use anything from this page to access my ntfs HD?

Fedora does not provide NTFS support by default. You are correct you will need to download the RPMs for FC2. BTW this is read only.
Create a directory to use as a mount point and then add an entry to your /etc/fstab file.

You can not mount music CDs because they do not contain a valid filesystem. KsCD requires an audio cable between the sound card and the drive. xmms uses digital audio extraction and does not need an audio cable.

Does that mean I can play the audio CD with xmms? I'll try that out in a sec.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what entry am I supposed to add into my fstab once I install the NTFS RPM?

EDIT: I was able to get XMMS to play the audio CD but the sound quality seems to be lacking. It almost seems like it's clipping ... I'll look into getting some EQ presets like I had with winamp. (sorry ... i'm a long time windows user, but i'm making the switch!)

Add
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=222,users 0 0

change /dev/hda1 and /mnt/windows to the actual partition and to whatever directory you create as a mount point.

See man pages for fstab and mount for additional help.

Do I actually have to create a mount point somehow? or can I simply tell it to mount to /mnt in the command?
