Subject: Re: CD-ROM Not Working
Please give more information. What instruction, if any, did you give
to mount it?
Did the mount succeed without complaint?
Where did you then look for data?
ls and dir
Does fstab have a line in it refering to a cdrom, such as /dev/cdrom
/mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
Yes, /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0
If so, to what does your /dev/cdrom symbolically link? For example,
ls -l /dev/cdrom might show a line including "/dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdd",
lrwxrwxrwx 1root root 8 Dec 16 15:04 /dev/cdrom -> /dev /hdc
in which case you might be able to see that it really is a CD by
"cat /proc/ide/hdd/media" showing "cdrom".
I am not going to concern myself with the floppy just yet. I figure I can
fix that with the same DISTRUCTIONS as for the CD.

Now I can't see anything on my CD's.
I can put in an audio CD and it will play but I can't see data on the RH9
What am I doing wrong?
