    Accessing a DVD-ROM CD/RW-ROM in MandrakeLInux 10.1


    Hey guys, how can i acess my CD/RW-ROM or DVD-ROMīs. Iīm not sure iīll be able to access them because in the MDK10.1 Installation the drivers for them wont detected so i had to do a hdd installation, but the CD/RW-ROM DVD-ROM were detected in my brotherīs computer. Anyway how can i access them?

    Hi,
    You could check to see wether /dev/cdrom exists, if it does, then it is a good sign. In case it does exist, make sure that you have something similar as this in your /etc/fstab file :
    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,rw,exec,users 0 0
    Once that is there open up a terminal and type mount /dev/cdrom or open up
    System -> Configuration -> KDE -> Storage Devices and select your cd rom drive, right click and telll it to mount.
