Mounting an audio CD


I am able to mount my dvd drives and they seem to work for all media except audio cds.. when I try to mount an audio cd, this is what I get:

Code:
[root@localhost bobbis]# mount /dev/hdd /media/dvd1/
/dev/hdd: Input/output error
mount: block device /dev/hdd is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/hdd: Input/output error
mount: /dev/hdd: can't read superblock
Does anyone know why this is happening?? Also, I am not able to playback MP3 files...

Thanks,
Mark

Thanks for the help and yea it does make sense to just put the disc in and open in my fav media player but for some reason, both drives are not recognizing audio cd's. I get a messgae when trying to use the dvd/recorder drive that states:

Quote:
/dev/hdd: Input/output error
mount: /dev/hdd: can't read superblock
Please check that the disk is entered correctly.
So it seems I am back to square one with this. Any clues???

Thanks,

Mark

What program are you using to play these discs? Are you root or a regular user? Better details get better answers.

Thanks for the reply,

I try to use a couple of programs to access the audio cd's:

Audio Player, KsCD, Music Player & Noatum

I do have a preloaded audio file (mp3) from the install - Seven Dust - which I can get to play using Audio Player.

Is your DVD/CDrom connected with your sound card?
You need a small cable for this.

If you don't have that cable you can always install some xmms plug-ins to make it work like in Windows.

Yes, both DVD drives (rom and recorder) are attached to the sound card. Well I guess I assume that. I installed the DVD Recorder myself and mirrored the setup for the original DVD rom (with one being master/primary and the other being slave/secondary). Prior to installing FC3, my old Windows XP did support both and I could use each one for any purpose, audio or data cd's.

Windows doesn't use it.
It's just a very small and thin cable between your CD/DVDrom and your sound card.

Windows uses CDDA extraction, this first reads the audio from the CD before playing it.

You should be able to find plug-ins that work just like it for most audio players(like xmms).

When trying to use KsCD does the player seem to be playing the CD but you just do not hear anything? Did you configure the player for the correct device?

spinal pap,
You can not mount an audio CD because they do not contain a valid filesystem. Do data CDs mount ok?
