having a bit of trouble getting an atapi (scsi emulated) cdrw/dvd combo drive mounted. keep getting the following error:
root@slacktop:/home/lyceum# mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
or too many mounted file systems
i have loaded the ide-scsi module, my lilo.conf file contains the line: append = "hdc=ide-scsi", and during boot it seems to be added correctly. no error messages in dmesg output except for alsa (another problem for another day). my fstab is as follows:
it actually had /dev/cdrom in that entry of fstab, but i'm using scsi emulation and /dev/cdrom is simply a symlink to /dev/sr0 which is the scsi device that has been associated with the drive. i changed it during my investigative stages, but wouldn't make a bit of difference as is.
