My CDROM drive died, so I just took it out and moved my ATAPI CD-RW into its place. Now Mandrake 7.2 will not allow access for any use, even though permissions are set correctly from root, etc. How do I configure the CD-RW so I can use it as an all purpose CDROM and a CD burner?

Thanks,
Tina Gasperson

CD-RW inaccessible

It says it is already mounted, but then when I try to cd into the directory, it says, input/output error.

What about your fstab file? Is it listed or not and if it is, what does it have listed for the entry?

tina...Mandrake 7.2 likes to treat all ide burners as scsi ones and if it is doing that to you then in your /dev directory you might have to change the link cdrom-->hdx to
cdrom--->scd0
