    problem mounting music cds.

    Hello. I am having trouble mounting music cds on my cd-rom (/dev/hdb). I get the following error:

    Could not mount device.

    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb,
    or too many mounted file systems
    This problem does not occur with data cds. I do not have "too many mounted file systems" - nothing mounted.

    Not sure what bad options or bad superblocks are...

    I checked out /etc/fstab, but I'm not clear on how to analyze it.

    Here's my fstab:

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    # <device> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    /dev/hda1 / reiserfs defaults 0 1
    /dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /floppy auto defaults,user,noauto 0 0
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw,devmode=0660,devgid=432 0 0
    /dev/hdb /cdrom udf,iso9660 defaults,user,noauto,ro 0 0
    /dev/scd0 /cdrom1 udf,iso9660 defaults,user,noauto,ro 0 0
    /dev/sdb1 /external reiserfs defaults,user,noauto 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /flash auto adminmenu,defaults,user,noauto,noatime,sync 0 0
    I am also having the problem with my dvd-burner (/dev/scd0). any ideas?

    Whay qub333 says.

    You can't mount an empty cd drive and if contains an audio cd then it still can't be mounted. It needs data cds to work.

    Audio cds just 'play' or are read by ripppers.

    oh ok...thanks

    now, how exactly do get the player to play the cd then? using xmms, I have tried several ways to get it to play the cd, but nothing. Tried "play directory" and "play location" and "play file" as well as opening the playlist editor & trying to load from there - each time chosing the directory location of my cd-player (/cdrom).

    any ideas?

    Bung in the cd

    In xmms select dir from the bottom of the playlist screen

    navigate to wherever directory your cd is assigned to according to /etc/fstab

    Click ok and the playlist should fill up with tracks.

    i think cd playing is a seperate plugin for xmms. "grip" is an excelent cdplayer/ripper/encoder with cddb support

    /cdrom is the MOUNT directory of the cdrom, and you wont be mounting here. you need to select the cdrom device node, like /dev/cdrom or /dev/cdroms/cdrom1

    it should play already within xmms if you have the audio cable connected from your cdrom to your sound card. if you dont have that youll need to get this plugin to be able to play the cd digitally:

    If you're using gentoo

    In gentoo, you can try

    ## emerge xmms-cdaudio

    In addition,

    ## emerge xmms-cdread

    Will let you read your audio cds as data
