Recent FC5 install, now CDR won't mount


We recently installed Fedora Core 5 on a previously RedHat 8.0 system
at work. For some reason, we're having problems getting the CDROM to
mount. As root, I added this to the fstab file:

/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom iso9660
noauto,owner,kudzo,ro 0 0

I've tried /dev/cdrom as well.

Logged in as root, I run the command mount -a and it appears as though
everything was fine (no errors) but when I do a df -h, the cdrom is
not mounted. So trying the command: mount /dev/cdrom

gets this:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Runnning the dmesg | tail, gets this:
dmesg | tail
end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 16
hdd: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdd: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 20
hdd: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdd: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 0
hfs: unable to find HFS+ superblock

Any thoughts/hints/help? I'm no Unix guru, but this shouldn't be this
difficult! Also, in System/Preferences/Removable Drives and Media, the
following boxes are checked Mount removable drives when hot-plugged,
mount removable media when inserted, browse removable media when inserted.

I'm completely at a loss on this. Thanks for any help or suggestions
you can give! Or any more diagnostics to pinpoint the problem. The CDR worked fine with the previous OS and actually was the install point for FC5 two days ago, so shouldn't be broken.

You're sure its hdd?

Try running "kudzu -p" and verify your CD is hdd.

I just found on my FC5 install it didn't create a mount for the cdrom so running that I found it was hda (we're using PERC RAID [SCSI] for the hard drives).

After doing that I added the following entry to my fstab based on the one I found on my old FC4 box:
/dev/hda /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

I had to "mkdir /media/cdrom" because it didn't exist.

Since I already had the CD in the drive I issued the command:
"mount /media/cdrom"

It worked like a charm. This was an ide CD drive.

kudzu -p outputs this:

class: CDROM
bus: IDE
detached: 0
device: hdd
desc: "LITE-ON LTR-52327S"

So, yes, it's hdd. I already created the /mnt/cdrom directory and it still won't mount. I can try the script you used and see if it works any better. Thanks for the quick reply!

Addon: Tried the same entry in /etc/fstab, no difference. Also moved the cdrom to /mnt/media/cdrom file, instead of the /mnt/cdrom I had it on. Still nothing. Arghhhh! (lol)
