I can't seem to get my CD-ROM device mounted(new word for me), nor does my floppy drive mount? How does that work, I'm clueless and what do I need to do in order to get em working ?
Thanks alot for any info


EDITED
Floppy Drive WORKS


CD-ROM error is:
Could not mount device

the report error was:

mount: No medium found

To mount your CDROM drive, do as root in cli:
mount -ro /dev/hdx /mnt/cdrom

where x is the letter for your drive, could be hdc or hdd, try them.

CDROM should be in your /mnt directory, if it's not do as root:
mkdir /mnt/cdrom

Might need to do:
chmod a+rwx /dev/hdx


Then look in /mnt/cdrom and you should see the contents of the CD.

I've been having problems reading my floppies, will be interested in other's response.

Kelphyr are you trying to mount audio or data cds? Audio cds can't be mounted.

Please note, that what you mount is not a CD drive, but a CD. You get those error messages if there is no CD in your CD drive. Insert a data disc like one of your Slackware CDs, eg, and try again.

Audio CDs aren't mounted, BTW.
