Mounting cdrom problem...


Don't know why, but I can't mount either my cd-rw or dvd drive. I've created the folder for each of them and my fstab is:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0


When I try to mount the drives I get the following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems


Any ideas?
Thanks

What is the command your using to try to mount and are these data or media cd's ? Remember, media cd's you will not be able to mount.

I tried several commands to mount them; including /mnt/cdrom, mount -a, and mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660; but actually, it probably is because they were media cd's, not data cd's.

In that case, how can I get my information of media cd's? When I put them in they start to play automatically, but I can't get to their files.

And why is it that you can't mount media cd's?...

Thanks a bunch!

Try mounting by mount /mnt/cdrom for data cd's--test by putting in a Linux CD for your distribution. I'm not sure about the last question though.

Yeah, it's working for data cd's now, just not media

Media cd's like dvd movies and music cd's don't have a valid type filesystem to mount and read them from, from my understanding.

If you are using RH8.0 you can't really use cds unless you find a patch that will do it in xmms. If you do find one post one here because I hate loggin into windows to listen to a cd

if you are using SCSI emulation I think you need to change your /dev/cdrom to /dev/scd0 and /dev/scd1. But then again I could be wrong.

This explains why I can't mount a music cd.
