View Full Version : [ubuntu] no automounting CDrom

February 12th, 2009, 05:40 PM
Hello guys,
I've got a problem with mounting CDroms.
I can mount them with the console, using
mount /media/cdrom
it works perfectly then.

But when i put a new CD in the drive, it doesn't recognise the CD, like it did a month ago. If i use the filebrowser to mount it I get a message saying something like "couldn't mount location, can't mount file" (in dutch). I can unmount drives this way, but i can't mount them. And using the console everytime isnt fun.

My fstab looks like this: (after a lot of changes)
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
UUID=48c506d4-42ad-4797-9121-ad6f9ecb406d / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1

/dev/sda3 /media/programs ntfs defaults 0 0

I've already looked around a bit at the forums, and foutn this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1038389&page=3&highlight=cannot+mount+file+cdrom
After trying everything there i don't have to sudo mount, but i can just use mount. But the real problem stays.

well, i've tried some more. I've looked at the lschal log. This is what is says when inserting a disk:

22:56:27.024: storage_model_DVD_RW_ND_3540A property storage.removable.media_available = true
22:56:27.071: storage_model_DVD_RW_ND_3540A property storage.cdrom.write_speeds = {'8467', '7056', '5645', '4234', '2822', '1411'}
22:56:32.949: volume_label_SS20AE added

so it reads the disk, but there is something wrong when it tries to mount.

when i mount it from console it says this:

22:58:08.873: volume_label_SS20AE property volume.mount_point = '/media/cdrom0'
22:58:08.878: volume_label_SS20AE property volume.is_mounted_read_only = true
22:58:08.882: volume_label_SS20AE property volume.is_mounted = true

so these last steps aren't done when inserting the disk. Only when mounting from console it works. I hope this helps.

edit: the cds are automatically displayed in /dev/disk/by-label
so that's the point where it stops.

Just a bump.
If noone knows, i'll give up...
