"...bad superblock" error when mounting cdrom
Both in root and in ~/ I get

"Could not mount device:

The reported error was:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on dev/cdrom2,

or too many mounted file systems"

Anyone familiar with this error message and can tell me what I can do to get my CD drive back in business?

It's a common error message when:[list=1][*]trying to mount a blank CD (there is no filesystem to mount)[*]trying to mount an audio CD (you can't mount those)[/list=1]
do either of those describe what you're trying to do?
There are other situations that would render this message. describe yours in a bit more detail.

this is when I'm trying to mount a data CD, in which I know (100% sure) of there being data on it.

Is it a burned CD? If so, how/what method was used to burn it?

Are you able to read the CD on any other PC? Other OS perhaps?
