mounting cd writer


i have 2 cd drivers, one dvd and one cdrw. I now have slackware 9.1 When i had the 2.4 kernel, i could use them both. However i have recompiled my kernel to a 2.6.7 and i can' mount them. I have managed to mount my first driver, the dvd one. However, when i give the mount command, it tels me: /dev/hdd is not a valid block device. However it wa a valid one before. When i recompiled the kernel i had to change the device of my first drive from /dev/sr0 to /dev/hdc . therefore i think i should change the second on from /dev/hdd to something else (in the last kernel it was /dev/hdc, and now /dev/hdc is the dvd). I don't know what it could be. I have tried /dev/cdrom /dev/sr0 /dev/hdd, and nothing works. Please help me. This way i ca't write cd's.

Help ME! Please!
thank you in advanced








ps: i have no windows, i belive only in linux, help me. linux shall rule

Im not sure about SuSE, but in Fedora I dont mount the CD-RW to write CD's. I simply used K3B and it did it all for me, admittedly if you cant mount the drive you cant read from it, but you shouldnt need to mount to write to it. Let me know how you get on.
