Mounting cdrom


When I try to mount my cdrom on vector 6.0 the drive sometimes mounts fine sometimes I get no media detected messages. What does end up mounting refuses to unmount, giving message device busy. I know it's not a hardwares or media problem because I was able to mount media and umount said media using Slax live distrobution w/o any problem my fstab appears fine so Im not sure where to go next.

When you get the "device busy" message.
Try using fuser to see what processes are attached to that device/filesystem.

Example:
Code:
fuser /mnt/cdrom
--ET

Well the fuser thing worked out well but the no media problem has gotten worse now cdrom isn't mounting any data disks using for dvds and music cds is fine the only thing I can think is it may be some kind of a driver issue but I dont know how to find out. Any Thoughts on this or suggestions of what to check for? I'm stumped. My cdwriter works fine to mount media so I can still access disks, but I would still like to figure this out.

Are Vector 6.0 and Slax both identifying the drive as the same type ?

If possible; try using "dmesg" on both and see what they find.
Example:
Code:
dmesg |egrep -i 'dvd|cdrom'
If they both find the same hardware. The next place to start looking might be /var/log/messages.
Perhaps running a
Code:
tail -f /var/log/messages
while you insert a disk into the drive.

See if that reveals any clues.
