CDrom mount problem Slackware 13.0
I spoke in error about the TDK and MAX drives being switched relative to /hdc and hdb in /dev.
Using udevadm info -a -p `udevadm info -q path -n /dev/hdc` and also for hdb this was shown to be correct. Furthermore, by listing using ls -l and cat to /sys/block/hdc/device/model (and also for hdb) it is shown the system has the drives correctly on hdc and hdb (i.e. MAX).
With fstab as: /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
a: mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
gets: mount: no medium found on /dev/hdb
mount /dev/cdrom0 /media/cdrom0 <--- Command
mount: /dev/hdb: unknown device <----- System response
mount /dev/cdrom1 /media/cdrom1 <--- Command
mount: /dev/hdc: unknown device <----- System response
At this point I don't know where to go so anyone got an idea?

Don't fall into despair, help is on the way!
What you have to do is just installing 'cdfs' on your slackbox.
Download -as usual- the source code and the slackbuild tarballs, follow the instructions for installing...
Try mounting a cdrom with root privileges
(i inserted a self-burned audio cd containing .wav files)
'mount -t cdfs /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom'
should instantly work for you
( ...assuming /mnt/cdrom directory exists on your machine

There you will find workarounds for several mount-problems.
