ripping troubles


I used to use acid rip and mplayer quite easily to rip dvds to the hd.
But just recently I reloaded my distro (fedora 1) and tried to reload the above programs and now I cant get the damn things to work anymore!!!

The trouble I am having is the standard install of fedora installs the dvd drive as a cdrom drive

I tried

# ln -s /dev/hdd dvd

which got me going last time, But now when I do this, then change my fstab to

/dev/dvd /mnt/dvd udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

If I try to mount the drive

# mount /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd

I get

mount: special device /dev/dvd does not exist

If I restart the computer, the location /mnt/dvd disappears and fstab goes back to

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

This is really driving me crazy as this bullshit is what is stopping me using acidrip !!!!

Please help

you like my program then? excellent.

I don't believe that it's possible for an entry in /mnt to dissapear, save for a very dubious "security" program program, which i've never heard of. what you might have though is /dev/dvd missing after a reboot, which would be down to devfs not recreating it (as /dev/ is not a real filesystem, and hasn't been for a few years now generally... it's only pretend)

your command says "ln -s /dev/hdd dvd" this implies you are already in the /dev directory. always best to specificy "ln -s /dev/hdd /dev/dvd" then there is no ambiguity.

BUT acidrip doesn't give a crap if /dev/dvd doesn't exist... just change the source path from /dev/dvd to /dev/hdd and it should run just fine.

I eventually got it working....

after modifying the fstab and creating the link, I noticed that when I right clicked of the desktop and went down to disks
that it still called the drive cdrom

I killed nautilus (which automatically restarted) then had a look and everything was correct!!!
Now it works fine

Thanks for the response anyway...
