'drake 10 can't access CD/DVD drive =(

Recommended Posts

Mandrake 10 community installed just fine, or so I thought. I cant seem to access my Plextor PX-708A CD/DVD Burner.

I know the drive is working fine but when I try to mount either a CD or DVD I get this message: "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc, or too many mounted file systems"

 

Here are the relevant parts of my lilo.conf and fstab:

 

lilo

append="noapic devfs=mount acpi=ht resume=/dev/hde5"

 

 

fstab

/dev/hde1 / reiserfs notail 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hde6 /home reiserfs notail 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 umask=0,user,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
/dev/hda6 /mnt/win_e vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hde5 swap swap defaults 0 0

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What exactly are you trying to mount? Linux does not mount music CDs or movie DVDs. You play them through pointing the media player of your choice to their /dev/ file like /dev/hdc. Sorry if you are not that n00bie.

Make your fstab entry look like this:

 

/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

Other than making sure that magicdev is installed, I'm at a loss. Just in case it might be important to someone else who may come along, post the output of

 

rpm -qa | grep magicdev

 

and

 

ls -l /dev/hdc

 

[root@laptop omar]# rpm -qa | grep magicdev
magicdev-1.1.5-6mdk
[root@laptop omar]# ls -l /dev/hdc
lr-xr-xr-x  1 root root 30 Mar 13 18:50 /dev/hdc -> ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd

hmmmm...have you rebooted since you edited fstab? I'm afraid it is necessary.

 

Edit: Anyone else know why /dev/hdc is not a symlink to /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd in this case?
