    multiple cd-rom drives are giving me trouble


    when i try to mount my dvd-rom drive i get n error

    mount: wrong fs type bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom, or too many mounted file systems

    i typed in
    mount /mnt/cdrom/

    how do i go about mounting just my dvd-rom drive or just my cd-rw drive

    any help would be appreciated

    thanx for reading

    Check that the /dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrom1 symlinks point to the correct devices and that your /etc/fstab is correct (most of all that it's using the iso9660 filesystem for the CD ROMs).

    There should be one for your DVD and one for your CD-RW. Of course, you don't need symlinks, you can use the real device names instead, but it might be easier with symlinks. Does /dev/cdrom point at your DVD or CD-RW? What's in your /etc/fstab?

    What does the /dev/cdrom symlink point at, and where on you IDE busses have you put your DVD and CD-RW? Also, have you enabled SCSI emulation, and, if so, on what drives? (Check /boot/grub/grub.conf and /etc/modules.conf for anything related to ide-scsi)

    OK, run "ls -l /dev/cdrom". "stat /dev/cdrom" also works, if you want more info.

    And it still complains? That's a bit strange. What happens if you do it manually (ie. "mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom")? Not that it should make a difference, but what do you know? What happens more exactly? Does it return this immediately, or does it take some time? Do you get any kernel messages (check /var/log/messages)? And again, is SCSI emulation turned on on that drive?
