/etc/fstab - /mnt/cdrom


Just installed MDK 10.1 on my laptop.
Can not mount /mnt/cdrom
/etc/fstab is as follows:
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto

What needs changed here?

Yes, thank you - that worked.

Now, can you help me get a voice recorder going.
It's usb so I would think its a mass storage device.
Does it need listed in /etc/fstab?
This line is what is in 'dmesg'
usb 1-1: new full speed usb device using address 2

Any help will be appreciated.

Do you mean its a voice recorder, that you just want to pull audio files from or is it a audio recorder, that you use with your computer?

It is a handheld Panasonic RR US360 digital recorder that attaches to my pc with a usb cable.
I want to move the files (voice) in the recorder to a harddrive.
It works in W98 but that is not where I need the files.
I've read the instructions several times trying to find out what the file extension is but have not found it.
It might be .wav, .ogg, dss: I don't know.

Okay then mass storage is exactly what you need.

mkdir /mnt/voxrec
/dev/sda1 /mnt/voxrec auto rw,suid,dev,noexec,noauto,user,async 0 0

The device might not be sda1, but it probably is. I've used voxrec, but you can of course use any name you want.

I have permission for /mnt/voice.
I tried this with sda1 - sda6 and nothing.
Also with sdb1 - sdb6, same thing, nothing.
'dmesg' does not list a 'sda'.
What else might it be?
Also, the notebook is 'ide' if that makes a difference.
