DVD Drive and CDRW Drive Will not mount on Slackware 10.1 Kernel 2.6.1
I have my cdrom(dvdreader)'s jumper set to secondary master and my CDRW's jumpers set to secondary slave. My bios reflects this input.

my fstab file looks like this:

/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / xt3 defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrw auto noauto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

I added this line to lilo.conf:


When I go to use my dvddrive, which should be under /dev/cdrom,
it tries to activate my cdrw. For instance, when I send /dev/cdrom
the eject operation, it ejects my cdrw.

When I send /dev/scd0 the eject command, it sends me an error
that says:

Eject /dev/scd0 failed!

When I attempt to mount my cdrw, it says:

mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Please check that the disk is entered correctly.

And my cdrom is showing up as already being mounted.

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Could someone out there
walk me through the process of setting up two cdroms - one secondary
master cdrom (dvdreader) and one secondary slave cdrw?

I followed a bunch of HowTo's from the net, but none of them
work, and I really just want to start from square one and go through
the entire process. I'm sure many people could benefit from the information.

Why are you using ide=scsi? IIRC, that's been deprecated.

Provide more details.
