Help with my Cdrw drive.
I baught a CDRW drive for my pc. I took out the cd rom and installed the cdrw. now whenever I try to mount the cdrw drive I am getting an error. I have been trying to fix it but I'm having probs.
Its a LG-8400B CDRW 40/12/40 drive.
I am running Red Hat 7.3 and Win98 SE. The drive works fine in WIN98
Oh, this is getting tiresome. You must, of course, understand that it's a little hard to know where to begin if you don't specify just what error you're getting? Furthermore, what file name does the device that you're trying to mount have? If it's /dev/cdrom, it's usually a symlink. What does it refer to in that case? I don't know how much you know about CD writing in linux, but have you configured ide-scsi?
Sorry I try to clearer!
Well it seems like it does not respond when its a audio cd. When I try to open a data cd its works fine.
When I try to mout a audio cd I get the following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom
or too many mounted file systems.
The device is /dev/hdc
When I try to get koncd to see the drive I get the following:
cannot open scsi driver!
Access denied to (null)!
you don't need to mount audio CDs. Also, there is a great howto on linuxdoc.org on how to write CDs under linux.
You cdrom might be setup so that only the root user can use it. I have this issue when I'm ripping or burning CDs. The root user owns the cdrom so I need to be the root user to listen to music off the cdrom. I can mount and unmout it fine as a regular user and I can copy data off it too.
Try running KOnCD as root (i.e. open a terminal window and execute the KOnCD command). If you can't find KOnCD is then in the terminal type "whereis koncd". In Red Hat 8 I just type "koncd".
