    Try:
    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 /mnt/cdrom
    and if it works you could open fstab again and change "auto" to "iso9660". But I thought it should work with "auto"? Are you sure the CD is good?

    When I try

    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 /mnt/cdrom
    it gives me an output of how to use mount.



    Here's my complete fstab file.


    /dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,users,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    Any clues??

    Marinus.

    Try specifying the fs type in fstab. You would change the part where it says "auto" to "iso9660" under the <type> column.

    When I try that, I get a page fault error from mount and bad file system.

    Here's the cd/dvd portion of my fstab and it works fine in Slackware:

    Code:
    /dev/hdd         /mnt/dvd             iso9660     noauto,owner,user,ro  0   0
    /dev/hdc         /mnt/cdrom1      iso9660     noauto,owner,user,ro  0   0
    Hope it helps you...

    Check that /dev/cdrom can be read by users and not just root.
    Code:
    ls /dev/cdrom -l
    will tell you.

    If it`s not readable by users that might causing Your problems.

    Code:
    chmod u+r /dev/cdrom
    should do it.

    Hi brother_mick,

    I followed your advice and in root changed the permissions.

    marinus@host:~$ ls /dev/cdrom -l
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2005-09-17 09:00 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc

    chmod was only possible in root.

    Then chmod u+r /dev/cdrom

    Still, I can play fine in root but get the same/following error in KDE/KsCD:

    CD-ROM read or access error (or no audio disc in drive).
    Please make sure you have access permissions to:
    /dev/cdrom

    Marinus.

    I havent`t used KsCDE myself but i`m not sure if you need to mount a audio cd before playing it. Have you looked at the configuration for KsCD ?

    I think you have to, actually it's saying that I cannot mount the cdrom..
    This has got to be something simple...
