    yes


    I have other people that have confirmed that this is possible. The more I think about it, I know that it shouldn't be possible but I was able to do it then and I should be able to do it now.

    Whoever confirmed that you can do that has no idea what they are talking about. You CANNOT mount anything that does not have a filesystem on linux.

    Done

    Well,

    The people that have confirmed this are absolutely correct. I think that you are again mistakening the fact that we are NOT trying to mount an audio cd. I'm trying to load an audio cd through this directory.
    I fixed the problem after running xmms from the command line prompt. It had these two errors
    Code:
    libesd.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    libxml.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    After I installed the correct files, I was able to load this through /cdrom. If you still don't believe that I can load files through /cdrom, then you can check the xmms forums because they are doing the same thing but they are using /mnt/cdrom because of Redhat linux. If you check this link LATER at night, I'll put an image at this link: http://rplaca.cs.qc.edu/~bpark/xmms.jpg
    All in all, thank you for your comment. Dolda, thanks a million for trying to assist me in this matter. You are always helpful as anyone in this forum can see.

    In that case it cannot possibly be a Linux issue, since as long as /dev/cdrom isn't mounted, /cdrom isn't related to that device in any way. If anything, I could imagine that XMMS could be patched to find /cdrom in your fstab and then look at /dev/cdrom instead (or recognize the exact string /mnt/cdrom to use /dev/cdrom instead).

    I must be going blind or something because after rereading the thread I just noticed this post now. I thought you were trying to mount the audio cd the entire time

    common mistake

    Genlee,

    Don't feel bad about that since a lot of people in my newsgroup have been asking me the same question over and over even when I specified that I wasn't trying to mount it. At a certain point, I was starting to feel frustrated because people were not reading and instead was skimming over the material.
