I am using Suse 9.2 on a Pentium 4 with 1gig of ram.
I just installed 9.2 and my dvd drive and my cd recorder stopped working. Whenever I try to access them, nothing happens. I can't unmount them or mount them, I just get an error saying that the drive is already mounted.
here is some additional information:
# mount -v
/dev/hdc4 on / type reiserfs (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
/dev/hdc1 on /windows/C type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
/dev/hdd1 on /windows/D type vfat (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,iocharset=utf8)
/dev/hda on /media/dvd type subfs (ro,nosuid,nodev,fs=cdfss,procuid,iocharset=utf8)
/dev/hdb on /media/cdrecorder type subfs (ro,nosuid,nodev,fs=cdfss,procuid,iocharset=utf8)
For some reason it looks like SuSE has mounted one of your hard drives to the DVD mount place, try adding another folder called DVD2 to the /media folder and add a line in your /etc/fstab that looks like
Ok I just checked my harware info on my system (YaST --> Hardware --> Hardware Info) and it lists my DVD drive as /dev/hdc but in my fstab it is listed as /dev/dvd. So I would try changing your fstab to point to /dev/dvd as this may be a pointer that tells the system to treat the device located at /dev/hda as an optical drive.
If you change that and it doesn't work change it back and let us know.
