Cant mount CDRom, tried normal solutions


Im new to Linux and Ive tried loads of difirent things, but I cant get my CDRom mounted.
I've tried all the editing fstab as said in most other threads I found, but nothing works. I think it has something to do with my Laptop, Dell has this laptop done a difirent way than normal so that hdc, is the hard drive, so I dont know where Linux should find the cdrom.

Heres my fstab
Code:
dev/hdc5   swap         swap    defaults                0   0
/dev/hdc2   /            ext2    defaults                1   1
/dev/hdc6   /shared      ntfs    user,ro,uid=1000        0   0
/dev/hda    /mnt/cdrom   auto    noauto,user,ro          0   0
/dev/fd0    /mnt/floppy  auto    noauto,owner            0   0
devpts      /dev/pts     devpts  gid=5,mode=620          0   0
proc        /proc        proc    defaults                0   0
By the way, I dont have a floppy drive so should I remove it from fstab?

You can remove the reference to the nonexistent floppy drive. Perhaps you should try using hdb or hdd. If you have the documentation you can figure out whether to use hdb or hdd. hda would be the master of the first controller, hdb the slave of the first controller, hdc the master of the second controller and hdd the slave of the second controller. If you know how it is physically configured, it should be easy to map it in fstab.

See if you can find your CD drive this way ( | is the pipe character):
Code:
# dmesg | grep ATAPI
Mine shows:
Code:
hdc: ATAPI CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache, DMA
I then verify the CD-ROM is linked to the hdc device node:
Code:
# ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2006-12-3 21:35 cdrom -> hdc

Code:
....@....:~$ dmesg | grep ATAPI
hda: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices

....@....:~$ ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2006-12-19 22:22 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hda
Seems to be correct

That is correct. You cannot mount audio CD's because they lack a valid file system
