Unhappy 2 cd drives only one ditected, but not working


slack 10.1 running,
i have 2 cd drives one is dvd combo and other is cdrom
one cd drive detected but i cant do anything with that not even eject at all
this may b a simple symlink problem, get me out of this

when i done #dmesg i got this as cd part
hdc: SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SM-352N, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: SAMSUNG CD-ROM SC-152C, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

my fstab looks
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0

i need to mkdir a new dir in /mnt and then symlink it ????

help

Go to your /dev directory, and find out which which actual device /dev/cdrom is symlinked to.

I suspect it will be /dev/hdc

If that is the case, you will need to create a new line in the fstab pointing to /dev/hdd , and create a new dir in /mnt called, i dunno, cdrom2, or dvd.

the line to add would resemble something like this:

/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto noauto,users,ro 0 0

you could also create a symlink in /dev to /dev/hdd and call it cdrom2, in which case the fstab line would change to

/dev/cdrom2 /mnt/cdrom2 etc...

hope this is of some help

What you could simply do, this should definitly work..

mkdir /mnt/cdrom2

remove from fstab:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0

add to fstab:

/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0


Ah well, bonzodog explained it good anyway
