View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mounting DVD drive for Samba Share

December 29th, 2012, 09:57 PM
I'm sharing my PC resources with my rasberry PI that is set up as a HTPC (using raspbmc). It works well sharing my harddrive but I haven't managed to share the DVD drive yet. I think the problem is that in 12.10 for some reason mounted drives appear in /media/[user]/ instead of just /media/ and now the CD drive appears to mount with the name of the title rather than as cdrom.
I was having trouble with sharing seperate partitions/harddrives but I fixed this by editing fstab to make the drives mount in /media/ rather than /media/[user]/ as above. I can't remember the exact problem but i think it was something like "couldn't connect the file has no permissions"
how do I either get the drive to mount as /media/cdrom or create a samba share with the current set up?
Thanks, any ideas appreciated.
