CD RW -- Writing Data to CD


I have LINUX 9 on my Dell Intel Xeon system

I recently purchased CDRW and installed it on my system. The system
will read data on a CD but will not recognize a blank CD. When I try
to mount the drive, I get the following message:

"mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems (could this be the IDE device where you in fact use ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)"

Still Learning. Thanks for your help.

What's Linux 9 ??

How does it "read data on a cd" without already being mounted? - post the out of

dmesg

if the device name is /dev/sr0 you'll need this in the relevant /etc/fstab entry - also - post your full /etc/fstab file..

well, of course you can't 'mount' a blank cd as an fs, there is no fs on a blank cd, you need special software to write to cdrws
look here

The OS is Red Hat Linux 9.0.

I can read data on a CD (install disk, pre burned CD, etc.). When I pop in a blank CD R and try to write to it, I get errors. I have tried several brands of writeable disks and get the same results.

Which linux 9? Mandrake, Redhat ...

You can not mount a blank CD. No data, no filesystem.

Did linux configure the drive automatically for you?

We need to know the device name of the drive from your dmesg output - also what current line you are using in /etc/fstab - post both in full.

What application are you using to burn the CD?

What are the errors?

I have X-CD Roast and another CD write tool that came installed with my system. Roast gives me an error (complains about ATAPI device) and the other tool does nothing.

Will have to post exact error, etc. when I return to the system later today.

Well if you'd post your dmesg output - we could see the device name of your CD RW drive and whether its using scsi emulation - you might need to put the device name of the cd rw drive in the X CD Roast setup tab and modify the relevant /etc/fstab entry also.........

x-cdroast is a GUI frontend for cdrecord. If cdrecord can burn a CD then you probably have a x-cdroast configuration problem.

UDF errors...
Is there a blank CDR or CDRW in the drive?

If it is a CDRW is it DirectCD or InCD formated?

Did you try my suggestion to write a CDR using the cdrecord command line?

I didn't see enough of the CD writer messages. Look at your /etc/grub.conf file do you have a hdc=ide-scsi in there somewhere?
