I run zipslack 8.1 My cd-rom doesn't read any cds. What should i do? Install some drivers? Recompile the kernel? I use TEAC CD-W58E. Please give me advice.

Moving to the Slackware Forum

What errors do you get when you try to mount them?

You may have to mount the devices properly as the symlink may not exist:
mount -t iso9600 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
