How can I mount?


I had a new distro installed but some of my devices (a DVD & a CD-Recorder), despite the fact that they were detected, were not mounted in /mnt.

How do I mount them?

what distro did you install. You may have to edit /etc/fstab for them to appear in /mnt.

I installed SuSE 8.2 Personal.

But neither the Windows Partition is mounted. How do I mount it?

I had similar problems when I used Suse. Anyway you can add cdrom devices to your /etc/fstab like the following example,

/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/dvdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

You'll have to adjust the entries to suite your system. You may also need to create folders in /mnt e.g /mnt/dvdrom and /mnt/cdrom.

I have noticed for SUSE (I have 8.0), it doesn't post any folders in the mnt folder. Everything is placed in the media folder... I would check there first... That said, the only IDE devices I have working thus far are my hard disk and zip drive...so I'm no expert, but learning more every day! DaveB
