    DVD/CDRW will not mount?


    DVD/CDRW will not mount?
    If anyone can give me any clues as to why my LG DVD/CDRW combo drive will not mount I'd sure appreciate it. Everything else works fine (scanner, modem, printer etc..)

    OS: PCLinux (Mandrake - KDE 3.1.4)

    It appears that the device is mounted as hdc, but I cant get access at all???

    Weird. I know that LG and mandrake are having some issues but I'm not sure whether my issue is related.

    What version of Mandrake are you running? I know that new versions mount CD-roms automatically.

    Code:
    root@insomnia slip # cat /etc/fstab 
    # <fs>                  <mountpoint>    <type>          <opts>                  <dump/pass>
    /dev/hdb3               /boot           ext3            noauto,noatime          1 1
    /dev/hdb1               /               reiserfs        noatime                 0 0
    /dev/hdb2               none            swap            sw                      0 0
    /dev/cdroms/cdrom0      /mnt/cdrom      iso9660         noauto,ro,users         0 0
    /dev/hda5               /files          vfat            users,uid=1000,gid=100  0 0
    /dev/hdb5               /storage        vfat            users,uid=1000,gid=100  0 0
    none                    /proc           proc            defaults                0 0
    See if you have a line(s) for cdrom there and if you do try putting a CD in and typing (put in the values from your config, just giving an example based on my box)
    Code:
     mount /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom
    to see if it mounts it then (do this as root).
