Question DVD/CD-RW Not Detected/Mounted


Hi,

My problem is that after installing Slackware 10.0 I can not access my DVDRom/CD-RW. The command dmesg | grep DVD or dmesg | grep hdd says the drive is there. (the drive is attached to hdd) but I can't mount it. Also in the /dev folder there is a device link dvd but it points to /dev/hdc not /dev/hdd also the link cdrom is pointing to /dev/hdc.

Also can anyone tell me how to view CSS (Region Protected) DVDs in Slackware 10.0

Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance

yes I had the same problem when I first installed what you do is put in a cd not a dvd and then
make sure you mkdir /mnt/whatever first!

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdxx /mnt/whatever


for some reason it wont work with dvd's at first untill you mount with a normal cdrom disk try to mount your slackware disk it works best

if that don't work try

mount -t udf,iso9660 /dev/hdxx /mnt/dvd

might work then edit your ect/fstabs to mount it automatic when you boot up

xine should read your dvds here is the video lan lib for css http://developers.videolan.org/libdvdcss/

hope this helps a little I only got a few hours of sleep last night and I don't even know If I'm awake right now

Start with the simplest things and go from there. Can you mount a data CD-ROM using the whole mount command like:
Code:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt/whatever_dir_you_made_for_the_drive

As I described earlier the dvd link in the /dev folder points to the CDROM not the DVD.
I tried to mount a CD with mount /dev/hdd /mnt/dvdrom what it did was mount the cdrom instead of the dvdrom

But I started seeing a new cdrom2 icon in the pane

I'll try to do the above things when I get back home

Thanks for the quick replies

More help would be even better

Maybe I didn't understand your setup completely. Do you have a DVD drive AND a CD drive?

/dev/hda = Primary IDE Master Device
/dev/hdb = Primary IDE Slave Device
/dev/hdc = Secondary IDE Master Device
/dev/hdd = Secondary IDE Slave Device

so make sure there is a folder /mnt/whatever
and try to mount a data CD-ROM placed into the DVD drive.

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/whatever
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt/whatever

better yet, put two different data CDs in each drive so you can see which drive is hdc and which is hdd.

From there you can either delete and recreate the symlinks /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd or if you have udev then follow the link in KMcD's post.

for mounting the dvd drive add udf to the filesystems.

for instance in Darlin's post for the dvd drive the filesystem should be

iso9660,udf
