I'm having trouble mounting my CD-ROM drive in Ubuntu Server. It's a CSA CDR-1300A drive, works just fine in Windows 98, but when loading Ubuntu Server, it always fails to mount. The CD can be read just fine, but the Linux kernel apparently doesn't detect it.

You could try:


ls -l /dev/cdrom

to see if it is linked to a device. In my case I get:


ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-09-22 14:23 /dev/cdrom -> scd0

To mount it manually:


sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0

Well, I tried the "ls -l ..." but it simply gives me a "no such file or directory" message.

Furthermore, I tried "sudo mount ..." and it says "~sh: sudo: not found" Even worse, I don't even know what sudo means! (I'm a real newbie at Linux...)
