    CDROM Help Part 2


    Well after a lot of grueling hours I got my cdrom to recognize on boot up. I got Red Hat 9 installed again but my two cdroms will not read any disks. Below is a copy of my /etc/fstab. If I use Red Hat disk 1 it will boot the cdrom but if the system is up, neither cdrom displays any information. Any ideas???

    LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

    You have to mount/umount them to read them..
    mount /mnt/cdrom1
    And when you finished using it, umount it:
    umount /mnt/cdrom1

    hey Serz thanks for the reply. I wish it was that easy!! My mistake for not posting the error messages on that. What bothers me is I had this all installed before and had Oracle loaded with no problems. No cdrom issues and no mount commands. I am not sure why I am having issues now lol.

    Here are the mount errors:

    [root@localhost root]# mount /mnt/cdrom
    mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
    mount: No medium found
    [root@localhost root]# mount /mnt/cdrom1
    mount: can't find /mnt/cdrom1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
    [root@localhost root]#

    Not sure what I am missing!!!!!!

    Thanks for the suggestion

    What are you trying to mount? Is this an audio cd?

    Data disks. I can't read any CD at the moment. I have tried the Redhat Install CD's and Oracle Cd's.
