CD/DVD will not mount (RedHat 5.1)
Looking for help (naturally) on something that has not been a problem in Solaris or Slack... however this is my first step into RedHat.
CD/DVD ROM is identified as in /dev
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Apr 21 2010 cdrom -> scd0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Apr 21 2010 cdrom-sr0 -> scd0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Apr 21 2010 dvd -> scd0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Apr 21 2010 dvd-sr0 -> scd0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 5 2010 cdrom
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan 5 2010 usbstick
I placed a DVD in the drive and ran:
[root_encrypt mnt]# mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
Without a DVD in the drive, it just fails miserable...
Am I just out to lunch on this? I'd still rate myself as *green* in the linux world, so any help would be much appreciated.
