can't mount cd/dvd (resolved)
« on: July 31, 2007, 08:40:49 am »
Hi guys
I have difficults to open cd and dvd and i did'nt know what happen! i use vector linux soho 5.8 and my fstab is:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# The following is an example. Please see fstab(5) for further details.
# Please refer to mount(1) for a complete description of mount options.
#
# Format:
# <file system>   <mount point>   <type>   <options>   <dump>   <pass>
#
# dump(8) uses the <dump> field to determine which file systems need
# to be dumped. fsck(8) uses the <pass> column to determine which file
# systems need to be checked--the root file system should have a 1 in
# this field, other file systems a 2, and any file systems that should
# not be checked (such as MS-initrd/mnt or NFS file systems) a 0.

# The Linux partitions
/dev/hda1 / reiserfs  noatime  0  1

# Shared Windows/Linux partition
#/dev/hda1   /mnt/dos  msdos  umask=0   0  0
#/dev/hda1   /mnt/win  vfat   fmask=111,dmask=0,quiet,shortname=mixed,user  0  0
#/dev/hda1   /mnt/win  ntfs   umask=0   0  0

# Floppy disks
# The 'noauto' option indicates that the file system should not be mounted
# with 'mount -a' 'user' indicates that normal users are allowed to mount
# the file system.
/dev/fd0   /mnt/floppy   auto   defaults,noauto,user   0 0
#/dev/fd1  /mnt/floppy   auto   defaults,noauto,user   0 0

# If you have a ls-120 floppy drive, it could be on /dev/hda b c d etc.

# CDROM, CDWRITER, DVD
/dev/cdrom1   /mnt/cdrom1   iso9660      users,noauto,ro
/dev/dvd   /mnt/dvd   iso9660      users,noauto,ro
/dev/cdrom   /mnt/cdrom   iso9660      users,noauto,ro

# NFS file systems:
#linux01.gwdg.de:/suse/6.3/i386.de  /mnt/nfs  nfs  defaults  0 0

# proc file system:
proc   /proc   proc   defaults   0 0

# Unix98 devpts filesystem:
none  /dev/pts  devpts  gid=5,mode=666  0 0

# Shared memory filesystem:
tmpfs   /dev/shm    tmpfs defaults 0  0

# Basic USB filesystem
sysfs  /sys  sysfs  defaults  0 0

# example of a VFAT USB pendrive
#/dev/sda1  /mnt/pendrive vfat   fmask=111,dmask=0,noauto,user,quiet,shortname=mixed 0 0


# Swap partitions
# The 'sw' option means auto activating with 'swapon -a'.
/dev/hda3   none   swap   sw   0  0
      
Is there anything wrong? Thanks for any help. ;) ;D

Did you use Audio cd's or data cd's?

its not possible to mount audio cd's as there is no valid filesystem on the disc. That may be the problem.

How are you mounting these devices and what errors are you getting?

I try to open cd/dvd clicando with the left button of mouse and choosing " mount" but simply the device does not mount and of as reply that does not have archives in cd/dvd… but when click  to eject the device make it to it…
what it can be? Previously I was using the vector soho 5.1 and everything was ok… what it can be wrong?

There maybe a problem with the cdrom and dvd setup.

As root try this in the terminal:

ls -la /dev/hdc
ls -la /dev/hdd

Also dmesg | grep hd may also prove helpful.

One easy way to do this is:

Right-click on desktop, select Create New --> Link to Device --> CD-ROM Device, then enter the details as appropriate. You end up with a desktop icon which you just click on to mount and view a CD, and you can unmount and eject it with a right-click.

I put another line afther the end of /etc/fstab but the problem continue. I can open the cd data normaly... :-\ thanks a lot.

Ok! I gave to enter in the end of the line of /etc/fstab and took off some points that had been previously. Then now I obtain to mount and to unmount the device as roseway said to make. Obrigada! Thanks  :D
