Problem mounting CDRW.


/dev/cdrom doesn't work anymore, I think I messed it up when I tried to do the LILO thing (make it look like a SCSI drive)

I've been trying to make it work again, using the command that came in the Email when you first install:

ln - sf scd0 cdrom

but it gives me an error:
ln: when making multiple links, last argument must be a directory

I took out the LILO thing, so it should be back to normal, but I just cant make it work.

What is the standard CD name? because I've been trying /dev/ide0 and stuff like that, and I cant remember the original name. Is it like /dev/hdc0? Or what?

Thanks for the help.

if it is the secondary master it will be /dev/hdc
run something like sfdisk -l or fdisk -l or maybe even
cat /var/log/dmesg |grep hd[a-d]
just to see what device your cdrom is..
all commands have to be run as root.
and the (s)fdisk commands are located in the /sbin folder.

edit your /etc/fstab file...

Sample entry for making CDROM readable by all:

Code:
/dev/scd0        /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,user,ro   0   0

Ah, I got it to work, thanks.

XPediTioN: If you're using KDE just make a shortcut on the desktop that points to /dev/cdrom
