i have cd-rw drive (as well as a separate cdrom drive) that was working fine until just the other day. I was using xcdroast which i had just installed. I was performing a dummy burn and the app hung and i ended up killing it. now my cd-rw drive has "dissapeared" (my cdrom drive is still fine however). the line from my fstab has dissapeared and everytime i add it back it gets erased when i reboot, along with the mnt/cdrw directory and the symbolic link in the /dev/ directory.
when i run: cdrecord -scanbus i get the following:
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J�g Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
and running dmesg only lists my cdrom drive, not my cd-rw.
I hope that is enough info. i am running redhat 9. my fstab looks like this right now:
