cdr-rw & floppy trouble with RH 7.2


Ok here is my problem. When I try to mount the cdr-rw or floppy i get the message: wrong fs type, bad option,bad superblock on /dev/cdrom, or to many mounted file system.

I have install RH 7.2 and i can not get my cdr-rw or floppy to work. i Have read the linux books, i have followed the instructions on HOW TO INSTALL a IDE CD-WRITER and i thought i was doing it right but i still have the problem. I can type eject cdrom and the tray opens. I can tpye: mount cdrom and the tray will close. But when i put a cd-rw disk in i get that message.

When I boot up the computer sees the cdr-rw as the Secondary master on HDC. When i tpye cdrecord -scanbus i get this:

0,0,0 0)'SONY ''CD-RW CRX185E1 ''XYS2' Removable CD-ROM.

Here is my etc/lilo.conf:

I am hoping that someone out there in linux land can help me.

Thank Randy

What command are you issuing to mount either CD or floppy? Plus in you /etc/fstab there are one and a half devices point to the same mount point. What I mean by 1 and a half is that line
/dev/scd isn't valid, it should be followed by a number 0 through whatever, can you post the part of dmesg where it gets to initializing your devices, particularly CD-R/RW. It is a single CD-R/RRW w/o a regular CD-ROM setup, am I correct?

first of all let me say thanks for helping me. In my etc/fstab it is /dev/scd0. I must have deleted it when i was posting the message. Sorry about that. The command i am using to try to mount is : mount /mnt/cdrom. Or i try using the GROME Foot Menus. I will try to post the dmesg. I really dont understand what you mean about the single CD-R/RRW w/o a regular CD-ROM setup???

Hold on, you are mounting an empty CD-RW (media)? Well guys correct me if I am wrong there is no way you can do this, there is nothing on the media, glitch.... And the warning message you posted looks like a hybrid of warning message "block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only" which is ok and an error message "or too many mounted files systems", which is not. So what is it you are trying to accomplish? Talk to us. And what is DRIVING YOU CRAZY, and "Everything else works fine"?

Again thanks:

Ok when i put in cd-rw with data on it into the tray and the tray close, a icon appears on my screen of the cdrom and the cd-rw window opens and shows what is on the cd-rw..BUT when i try to put info onto the cd-rw disk ( i copy my fstab) and try to put it on the disk...I get a message: Error while copying to /mnt/cdrom....the destination disk is read-only.

But the disk is a cd-rw disk.

And also i am not sure why i have two cdroms listed in my fstab since i have only the SONY CD-R/RW on my computer.

AGIAN thanks for your help.

Randy

Dont you have to have a certain program to do the Read Write part of the RW process. I mean you can just hve an always open session waiting to burn to the cd.

Just some FYI:
You can't mount a blank CD.

linux doesn't support packet writing to CDRW's yet i.e. Copying files to the CDRW without using a CD writing program. You will need to use an application to write CD's like xcdroast, gcombust or similar.
