CDROM problems....like the 5th time i


ive been having on going problems with my cdroms being mounted, at first they would work for a few minutes and then they would stop...i finally got my burner to work and i burned some cds yesterday, i dont think i have a problem burning as i just bunred another cd, but im having problems mounting cds to read them
here is my fstab and lilo.conf
fstab:

/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users,rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

lilo.conf:

boot="/dev/hda"
prompt
timeout="300"
root=/dev/hda1
vga="790"

image="/boot/vmlinuz"
label="Linux"
root="/dev/hda1"
read-only
optional
vga="788"
append="hdd=ide-scsi"

ive tried everything, i cant even mount them in root, but they are being detected, and i can burn cds so im completly stumped
somebody help me

Try changing /dev/hdd too /dev/scd0 in fstab ( maybe something slightly diffrent ) You may simply be getting conflicting info as your converting the hdd to a scsi device. ( Which you need to burn CD's ).

Thats what I'm saying, the /dev/hdd no longer exists, its been coopted into a scsi device. so you can burn to it. When your mounting the drive normally, there is no /dev/hdd so it fails.

So you need to alter fstab so its points to where linux now believes the cd drive to be. /dev/scd0 ( or similar ) NOT /dev/hdd, even though thats actually where it is.

I hope thats clearer
