CD-Rom mounting..


hey guys,

bit of a newbie question here. i'm running xandros box and trying to mount a CD.. I read the other post http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=178681
but still having some problems..

in /mnt/
Code:
amnt  cdrom0  fd0  XandrosMntDir
i tired a few ways but keep getting some errors.

Code:
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom0
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
and..

Code:
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom0 -t iso9660 -o ro,umask=0
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
       or too many mounted file systems
could ya gimme a little bit of a hand.. also maybe with mounting floppy, (lol that sounds bad).

thanks

If your using kde go to the start menu, select system tools, disk management, select CD ROM and click mount. If your not I'm sure whatever you are using has something similar.

Are you certian that this disc is good and readable? Are you sure it was written with a ISO9660 filesystem? Maybe try in another computer?

what IDE-channel do you use for your cdrom?
Was that you /etc/fstab you printed out last?

What happens if you type: "mount /mnt/cdrom0"

In the file where you load modules at boot (on my set its /etc/modules) is ide-scsi an included module?

in my /etc/fstab the cdrom is specified as follows:

/dev/scd0 /cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0

it's on scd0 since I load the ide-scsi module at boot (to be able to use cd-writing)

Any changes made to /etc/fstab needs a reboot to take place.

You see that ide-scsi is loaded then. Either comment that row out or make your /etc/fstab look like:
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,nosuid,nodev,exec,user,noauto,async,unhide 0 0

that should solve your problem, if not post here again and we'll work it out.

Edit: Commenting out a row is done by putting a # in front of the text on that row.
