View Full Version : [kubuntu] New CD-Rom won't mount

June 6th, 2008, 11:20 PM
I just put in a new CD/DVD combo drive and I can't get it to mount.
"lshw -C disk" gives me:

description: DVD-RAM writer
product: DVD-RAM GSA-H55N
vendor: HL-DT-ST
physical id: 0.0.0
bus info: scsi@2:0.0.0
logical name: /dev/cdrom2
logical name: /dev/dvd2
logical name: /dev/scd0
logical name: /dev/sr0
version: 1.00
serial: [HL-DT-STDVD-RAM GSA-H55N1.0007/04/05 7U02
capabilities: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd dvd-r dvd-ram
configuration: ansiversion=5 status=ready
physical id: 0
logical name: /dev/cdrom2

And my current /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda1

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto,exec 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/Albums ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_US.utf8 0 0

When I try to mount i manually I receive an error as shown below:

sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom2 /media/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I also tried the logical name /dev/sr0 but get the same results. Any suggestions on how to resolve this?

I tentatively got it to work. I can run the command

sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom2 /media/cdrom0

and it atleast mounted, where as

sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom2 /media/cdrom

failed. FYI /media/cdrom is just a symlink to /media/cdrom0. So I gave it the direct path and it mounted fine, in case anyone else experineces this issue. I will try to reboot then and change /dev/sr0 to /dev/cdrom2 to see if it automounts. I was confused because so many logical names were listed on the output of lshw
