    CDROM problems in Fedora Core 2

    HI, I've been using Fedora core 2 for little over a week now and still haven't found, or figured out how to resolve this annoying problem.

    I have an LG dvd rom and a Plextor CDRW, both have the FSTAB entries of:

    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 auto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 auto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

    Now the problem I have is that the cdrom drives seem to stop working after a while, if I go to add new packages, the system asks for one of the Fedora discs, and then proceeds to inform me that the cdrom is not accessible...

    If I then try to eject the cdrom it doesnt work, just says failed to eject device blah blah ..

    Anyone else having similiar problems ?

    /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 auto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    replace two lines with these :
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
    /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 auto ro,nouser,exec 0 0
    it may works..

    Thanks, tried that but it's still the same, i'm guessing it's just incompatible cdroms or something .. seems to work though if I logout,insert the cd and then log back in .. just a little problem if it requires a cd change hehe ..

    no, there is a compatability problem with the lg drives in linux. there exist ways to fix it, let me hunt around abit and see if i cant find any. but search the forums, there was a thread on this a little while ago.

    try manually unmount and re-mount it again.
