mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device


I get this error when I try and mount my cdrom.

If I do ls -la /dev/cdom I get this.

joe@laptop:/usr/src/linux-2.6.6$ ls -la /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 May 22 18:46 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/sr0

My fstab....

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


I have a cdrom/rw dvdplayer/burner all in one multi drive.

Any ideas on what to do.

Thanks ahead of time

First I assume you are passing in your /etc/lilo.conf
append="hdc=ide-scsi" or whatever hdx should be for you.
Second this isn't an audio device or some other disc that you can not mount is it?
