CDROM problems Dell Inspiron 1100 Fedora Core 1.0


Hi everyone!
I am having some cdrom problems which I am hoping that someone will be able to help me out with.
First question:
When I try to mount a data CD this is what I get...

[root@localhost chris]# mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist

How do I view this CD?

Second question:
I am having problems playing DVDs and music CDs. Originally Fedora automatically recognized DVDs and music CDs now it is telling me that I do have permission and when I put in music CDs it tells me to change my permissions of /dev/cdrom.

Help please anyone! I have had great luck using MPlayer watching dvds and then all of a sudden this happened. I don't know what I did.
I will try to elaborate more if someone has questions.

Thanks,
Chris

Your CD player might not be used as a direct cd device, but as a SCSI device.
Have a look at /dev/sd0, /dev/sd1 if these exist.

If so, change your fstab entry from
/dev/cdrom
to
/dev/sd0

and try mounting again.
Note it might be at
/dev/sd0, sd1, sda, sdb or any other device.
Sometimes running
dmesg
gives you a hint on what type of device your CD ROM device is attached.

Try changing /etc/grub.conf :
# kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.427 ro root=LABEL=/ hda=ide-scsi
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.6-1.427 ro root=LABEL=/
