    Ah, all that explains a lot of things. It seems that the installation set hdc to be on SCSI emulation. You'll need to change your boot loader configuration so that it says `hdd=ide-scsi' instead of `hdc=ide-scsi'.
    How to do that depends on what boot loader you're using. If you use GRUB, change it in /boot/grub/grub.conf. If you use LILO, change it in /etc/lilo.conf and then run "/sbin/lilo" to update the boot sector. If you use GRUB, you shouldn't run anything after editing.

    .......................Success!

    Thanks! It worked. Now I have to decide what it is I want to do with it...i

    I will be telling/asking you more about the mplayer situation, soon...I haven't meant to be rude. I've just been letting some time pass. I managed to use acid rip to copy a DVD onto my hardrive, but I have some more questions about setting up mplayer, as I'm not really completely happy with i.he way it plays I'll continue this over on that forum in a few days, when I've formulated my questions as sensibly as I can!

    You've all been a terrific help.

    Similar problem

    I have a similar problem to 'dHarryBear's, but not exactly the same- I have two drives, hda and hdc, but hdc doesn't want to work. Basically, the boot-up sequence detects the second drive, but it won't mount the second drive.

    Following the directions you gave to dHarryBear, I got the following output from "dmesg | egrep 'ide|hd.'":

    what happens when you try to mount the drive manually with mount /dev/hdc1 /some_mount_point ?

    Also have you tried adding hdc1 into the /etc/fstab ?

    When I tried 'mount /dev/hdc1 /home/eyeonus/hdc' it mounted the boot sector of the drive- hdc was a bootable FC3, that I killed accidentally when I tried to update glibc. Trying to mount hdc2 gives this error:
    ---------------------
    [root@... eyeonus]# mount /dev/hdc2 -t ext3 /home/eyeonus/hdc
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc2,
    missing codepage or other error
    In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    dmesg | tail or so
    [root@... eyeonus]# dmesg | tail
    lp0: console ready
    application mixer_applet2 uses obsolete OSS audio interface
    kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds
    EXT3 FS on hdc1, internal journal
    EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
    SELinux: initialized (dev hdc1, type ext3), uses xattr
    VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdc2.

    As far as adding the drive to fstab, I don't have a clue how to do that.

    What FS type is hdc? Is it a windows file system, you can check the FS type by executing this command:
    Code:
    fdisk -l /dev/hdc

    Disk /dev/hdc: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4865 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hdc2 * 14 4865 38973690 8e Linux LVM

    Also, I'm getting a different error now, after switching to Ubuntu Linux:
    root@...:~# mkdir /hdc
    root@...:~# mount /dev/hdc2 /hdc -t ext3
    mount: /dev/hdc2 already mounted or /hdc busy

    If ubuntu says that, then look in /etc/mtab to see where hdc is mounted and try access from there.

    Also this: "VFS: Can't find ext3 filesystem on dev hdc2." shows that the type of FS used on hdc2 is not ext3 and since I am not familiar with LVM, I can't help much there. Also, when you created the partition, do you remember what you formatted the drive as?

    hdc isn't mounted- that's the problem. It's not in mtab or fstab at all.

    I formatted the drive as ext3, Ubuntu changed the format to LVM during install.
