Fedora 7: CDROM Not Mounting


Im new to this Linux, I have installed a dual Boot with XP Pro & Fedora 7 and so far so good. But when I tried playing a cd with sound juicer it tells me no cd drives found. It sees my legacy floppy and it mounts my usb when plugged in.

Can anybody help me!

1. you cannot mount a music CD. You can only mount filesystems on media, not the media itself, and the CD doesn't have one.

2. While sound-juicer can play CDs, it is primarily a ripping tool. Rhythmbox (gnome) and amarok (kde) are the standard music players.

3. In f7, it is supposed to autoplay CDs when they are inserted (or start the ripper - depends). Presumably this doesn't happen. Can you mount data CDs OK?

Nothing

When I insert an audio or data cd it doesn't respond. The cdrom is just not working.

Have you tried mounting a data CD manually?

What didn't respond? The CD-Drive? The desktop? Your nose?

1. CD-drive unresponsive: check to see that the front led on the drive flickers and/or there is a whirring noise when the drawer closes. If not, then the drive is broken. Get a new drive.

2. no response from the desktop: either the drive isn't detected or udev isn't set up properly, of fstab is not set up properly. Is this a new drive?

What is the output of:
ls /media
cat /etc/fstab

dmesg | grep cdrom
look through the syslog to find out what device your cdrom is assigned to. Typically hdc, or sdc, but could be all kinds of things.
Try to mount the drive manually (sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt) ... use a data CD.

3. Can't help you there man... well, I suppose you could try wearing less scent?
