    cdrom does not exist??


    Hi folks, I'm a newb here-

    I installed knoppix off a cd that came with "Knoppix Hacks" -I think it's 3.4 but I'm not sure.
    I was able to play music off a cd in my dvd/cd player once before. I just loaded 'kscd' and it did the mounting for me. now it wont work, neither will the 'mount' command, nor the cd/dvdrom icons in kde. Can anyone help??

    this is what I get in my terminal-
    Code:
    marf@kbox:~$ mount /cdrom
    mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist
    [/code]

    quite normal young one! sorry had too :P
    cd audio cannot be mounted
    use something like XMMS or kaffeine to play them

    using kscd I don't get any tracks listed and in xmms I can't find the tracks...they arent in /mnt/cdrom, /mnt/cdaudio, /cdrom, or /cdaudio....so how do I access them..?

    (dont worry, I am young in linux terms)

    read those post, they'll help...
    you cannot see the file under /mnt/cdrom since the cdrom isnt mounted...
    can you try using kaffeine

    or install libcdaudio itll help too

    "Are there diosaurs in heaven??" You are young. So, you loaded Kscd, itworked, but now it does not. You can try a diffrent player or check KDE's webb site to see is there is bug with your player.
    Research, research, research before you walk the plank.

    thanks

    Thank you for the help. . I know it wasn't the program because I couldn't even mount the cdrom at ALL. I installed mandrake because a hard drive install of knoppix is a silly idea anyway-and for the record, Mandrake has never let me down.
