cdrom FS

Hi, i've burned a game under windows but when y try to mount it i get this error:
wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom, or too many mounted file systems

i've tryed to mount it with mount /dev/cdrom, mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom. mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
and i've always the same error message...
anyone know how i can mount my cdrom?

At the risk of sounding silly:

Does the CD-ROM you burnt actually work in winDOHs?
And if it does, were you able to mount other CD's in Linux?

$> mount -iso9996 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

this should mount a cd rom. however if you want to burn cds and you have a kernel 2.4.xx then you need to add append = "hdc=scsi-ide" to lilo.conf. After adding this line make sure you run lilo. $> /sbin/lilo.

*****where hdc is the place of your cdrom. hda is master primary ide device. hdb is the slave primiary, hdc is master secondary drive. hdd is slave secondary drive.

Is your CD-ROM device actually /dev/cdrom? Not /dev/sda1 (due to ide-scsi)? Not /dev/cdrom0 (due to udev)? Not /dev/ide/host*/target*/lun*/disc (due to something I have no idea why)? What does your /etc/fstab say for this device?

And yes, checking whether the CD works under Windows, and/or whether you can mount other CDs under Linux is a good idea as well.
