problems w/ mounting cdrw


Hello All:

After alot of sweat and toil and posting here a gazillion times I got my cdrw working. I mounted it w:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

Now I get the following:
mount:wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
or too many mounted file systems


Please tell me:

what do I do, and, since I'm a newbie, how do I do it?

anxiously awaiting relevant replies,

ergo_sum

It's a cdrw, w/ scsi emulation

grub.conf lists my cdrw as:
hdc=ide-scsi
but the device 'was' scd0.

I think what michaelk is asking is what kind of disc are you trying to mount.

It will give you that error when you try to mount an audio CD (audio CDs can't be mounted).

ergo_sum: To summarize (ha!) the above comments, if you are putting an audio CD into your drive, you do not and should not try to mount it. Just launch your CD Player app (whichever one you use) and you should be good to go. If you are putting a data CD into your drive, then you do need to mount it first. -- J.W.

Hello All:

Sorry for the delay.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, what I'd like to do is copy a sound cd (we're talking sounds of wind, rain and a few other natural occurances). Since I only have the cd burner, what I'd like to do is move the data (contents of the cd) to my hdd and then burn a copy.
So:

how do I move the data to my hdd?

how do I burn a cd?

Thanks,

ergo_sum

A couple of apps come to mind, cdda2wav and grip.

For burning, k3b, xcdrecord, cdrecord among a few.

If you are using lilo to boot, you may want to make sure that the append line contains something like hdd=ide-scsi. Your cdrw drive may be attached differently, so hdd my need to be hde for example.
The setup program for k3b will setup an entry line in fstab for you. Although, if it is already setup using supermount, you may want to leave it as is. A supermount fstab entry looks like
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=udf:iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=utf8 0 0

If all you want to do is copy the cd, you don't need to rip all the tracks separately then recombine them all. Cdrdao will copy the disc as a whole.

What I want to copy is an mp3 file of natural sounds. Since I only have the cdrw, I need to copy to my hdd, and then rip the files on a cd.

That's been my problem. I need to move the files to my hdd, and don't know how to do that.

An mp3 is a data file so you can copy it just like any other file.
