Unable to mount CDROM in Suse Linux (Able to open the CD in windows in another sys)


Hi,

I need to install a VLSI simulation software in my machine.

Since that is an windows software, i installed windows xp in my virtual box present in suse linux.

when i tried to install the simulation software through the CDROM, I am unable to mount the CD.(CDROM has been detected in Linux) but i was able to open the disc in my friends machine with windows and also there is no fault with my disc reader since i am able to open other disc)

when i tried to mount the CDROM manually(as root)

I got the below message.

linux-p8ic:/home/elcot # cd /media
linux-p8ic:/media # mkdir dvd
linux-p8ic:/media # mount /dev/hda /media/dvd
mount: block device /dev/hda is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so


linux-p8ic:/home/elcot # dmesg | tail
The failed "Read Subchannel" packet command was:
"42 02 40 01 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "
hda: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: packet command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
ATAPI device hda:
Error: Illegal request -- (Sense key=0x05)
Cannot read medium - incompatible format -- (asc=0x30, ascq=0x02)
The failed "Read Subchannel" packet command was:
"42 02 40 01 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 "

Kindly help me to solve this as i am very new to linux.

Thanks,
Ameena

Well, you're not mounting the right device. /dev/hda is an entire device.../dev/hda1 (or whatever #), is the partition you need to mount. Also, as a rule, most SuSE systems won't do /dev/hdXXX for devices, more often than not these days, it'll be /dev/sr0 or /dev/dvd....do you have those devices present?

What version of SuSE?
