mount : No medium found
 
Hi

I'm using Fedora Core 3.
Dual Boot with XP.
I can't seem to mount the cdrom -->

# mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
mount: No medium found
OR
mount /media/cdrom
mount: No medium found

OR
mount /media/cdrom -t iso9660
mount: No medium found

The cd (tried more than one cd) is not corrupt and it is a data cd. Linux recognizes the cdrom since the eject command opens the cdrom. The cd rom is not defective cause I used it to install Fedora.

fstab entries:
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

dmesg has the following output (snip - only included what I thought is relevant)
hdc: CD-956E/AKV, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
Probing IDE interface ide2...
ide2: Wait for ready failed before probe !
Probing IDE interface ide3...
ide3: Wait for ready failed before probe !
Probing IDE interface ide4...
ide4: Wait for ready failed before probe !
Probing IDE interface ide5...
ide5: Wait for ready failed before probe !

hdc: ATAPI 52X CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache, DMA
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20

I did create a soft link to /dev/cdrom from /dev/hdc (Don't know if this is necessary though...)
]# ls -lah /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Jan 10 13:27 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc
Still no success.
- I can't hear the cdrom spinning after inserting a cd...
- I have tried disabling DMA but it had no effect.

var/log/messages has the following entry after I tried to mount:
kernel: cdrom: open failed.

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated. I'm stumped

Thanks
Ali

Well, you may want to make sure that /dev/hdc is indeed your cdrom (that means it needs to be the master device on the secondary IDE controller). If you have your hard drive as /dev/hda and your cdrom drive is slaved to it, then your proper device name for the cdrom would be /dev/hdb (it's common to have it setup this way).

Well, just a thought.

Fedora Core 3 does not use the /mnt directory. It now uses the /media directory.

If you would still like to use the /mnt directory issue the following commands as root:
Code:

cd /
rm -rf /mnt
ln -s /media /mnt

This one got me too. Quite a headache.

Hope this helps!

Edit: Oops, disregard. I didn't catch that you already tried /media.

I've got 2 seperate hard drives, one for windows and one for linux. linux is mounted(installed) on hdb.
