CD mounting problem


Recently Ive noticed ive got a problem when mounting cds. when i issue "mount /media/cdrw" its says

mount: block device /dev/hdd is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

The problem is dmesg doesn't say anything about it. So does anybody know whats going wrong?

pls post your /etc/fstab file contents

I suspect you have it as a rw mode by default hence the first info but the second relates to either the type of file system you are attempting to mount or the kernel or its module supports for code page

iso9660 should be the fs type for cds

Okay, thanks for the reply. here is the contents of my /etc/fstab. I tried setting it as iso9660 and its fine however Ive had it as auto for ages and its just recently Ive noticed it doesn't seem to be working so what Ive done wrong to it?

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed; notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency). It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#

# <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.
/dev/hda5 /boot ext2 noatime 1 1
/dev/hda6 / ext3 noatime 0 1
/dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/dvd auto ro,users,umask=0000 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrw auto users,umask=0000 0 0
/dev/floppy/0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users,umask=0000 0 0
/dev/hda3 /mnt/swap vfat auto,users,exec,umask=0000 0 0
/dev/hda4 /mnt/win ntfs auto,users,umask=0000 0 0
/dev/sda1 /mnt/pendrive vfat auto,users,umask=0000 0 0
#none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0

# NOTE: The next line is critical for boot!
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

# glibc 2.2 and above expects tmpfs to be mounted at /dev/shm for
# POSIX shared memory (shm_open, shm_unlink).
# (tmpfs is a dynamically expandable/shrinkable ramdisk, and will
# use almost no memory if not populated with files)
shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec

well I kinda come from the slackware way of manually mounting and unmounting.

there is autofs and some other system I forget the name of but I always like to be in control of what is being read or accessed.


(2) you may not know I have moved away from reiserfs.....xfs is faster there is a speed test here
