Peace,

There' no reference to any cd-rom/dvd listed in either. I'll surf around and find out how to get them working.

Here is my cdrom mount line from /etc/fstab
Code:
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
So if you see anything with iso9660, that is your cd/dvdrom. In this case I have an IDE hard drive, so it is hda, and the cdrom is hdc. On a machine with sata drives and 2 DVD roms, it looks like this:
Code:
/dev/hda        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdb        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
Except for very unusual hardware setups, it will always be between /dev/hda and /dev/hdd.

Peace,
JimBass

I entered in the exact same thing in /ect/fstab but when I try "mount /dev/hda" I'm given a message telling me it's not found in fstab or mtab.

Is there a line I'm supposed to put this on? Should I be naming it something esle?

What does "noauto" do?

Do you have a link to detailed instruction on this? I'm going around in circles.

Post your original fstab so we can see where it thinks the cdrom is.

noauto tells it not to mount the device at boot, as there may be nothing in the device.

Peace,
