Wink another cd/dvd question...


Well okay, I've got the dvd to play cd's in kscd, i put the cd in and it playes the cd, wonderfull
But... if i put, say.. a cd with mp3 files in the drive and go to /mnt/dvdrom/ <-- the drive is empty, computer tells me there is nothing there... why? I can't go through xmms and add the mp3 files, or the cd tacks either...

Has anyone ever had this problem before?

Did you MOUNT the disc? To access any filesystem you need to mount it first. You will also need to unmount it before you can eject the disc. You won't be able to unmount if files are in use.

after inserting:
mount /mnt/dvdrom

before ejecting:
umount /mnt/dvdrom

Is it mounted? It might not be automounting it like kscd does to play the cd's you have as it will auto do this to play them since its a cd, and not a data cd.

mount /mnt/dvdrom
cd /mnt/dvdrom
