how do i mount a audio cdrom in slack9
Is a audio cd iso9660 cause i am using the command mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom and it gives me wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom or to many mounted filesystems. i did a mount -l and all i have is hda1 pts proc and usb mounted. in other words its not already mounted.

The easy answer is - you can't. An audio cd's type is *not* iso9660, or any of the other mount types.

There is a bright side though - you don't need to. Why would you want to mount it anyway? Playing it should still work in any multimedia program, just by specifying the cd device.

Good luck.

because i want to rip mp3s from it using lame so i need to be able to get to the actual files i think or am i missing something about lame?

for audio CD you have not to use mount
just play it with CD player

regarding mp3 files - they are not on audio CD! such CD is with regular file system iso9660

As I said - you can't mount audio cds. If you want to rip them, the ripper should be able to deal with the unmounted device file - just point it to /dev/cdrom or whatever.

allright, let me rephrase here so i can get help. i know mp3's are not on a cd duh let me say that again duh. I want to get the music which normally shows up as a .wav file when i copy music off a cd onto my computer in windows (whether windows does some sort of conversion automatically i dont know) so i want to get the music on a cd converted to mp3 format so that i can put it on my server and/or listen to it from mp3 format. I installed a program LAME which i think will do the conversion for me, however in the man page it says use the command:
lame [options] <infile> <outfile>
now i am assuming i need this <infile> to be a file residing somewhere on my computer or where i can get to it from my computer (i.e. maybe a network). So i guess my real question is....... how do i get music from a audio cd to my linux computer as a .wav or any other format for that matter that is supported by lame, file?

ok while i was typing an answer was posted. So what ripper should i get to do this? any suggestions? preferably things that work well in slack9.

LAME is an encoder. It encodes a digital file (like a Wav) into mp3. The audio cd isnt really a digital format.

So you need to extract the music into wav, and then you can encode it into any format you like.

Try Grip. It can rip and encode.

Thanks, i already found CDparanoia and LAME. Between the two they work great.

p.s. Mara - if your gonna close my post for being similar to my other one in a different forum please at least answer the question then please instead of closing me clueless. Also, if you noticed i answered myself in that forum.

p.s.s. special thanks to contrasutra for answering the post!
