    Create a directory: (in a terminal type)
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/cdrom1
    Under
    Code:
    /dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
    in your fstab file, add
    Code:
    /dev/scd1       /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0       0
    Again in a terminal type:
    Code:
    sudo mount -a

    now i can see the cdrom1, but i get an error window saying mount: special device /dev/scd1 does not exist. I made a directory for /dev/scd1 but the new error is mount: /dev/scd1 is not a block device.......what does that mean?

    You should not make a /dev/scd1 directory. The line with /dev/scd1 in fstab tells the system to mount another device and map it to /media/cdrom1. Browse the /dev directory, have a look around there to get a feel for what goes on in the background. Just look, don't touch. (unless you know what you are doing.)

    Looks like the drive is not being recognized. You might want the check if it is properly connected and also that it is in working order. Do you have media in both drives when testing?

    Re: mount dvd drive

    thank for helping labinnsw, but both dvd burners are on cable select and physical hooked up with the same ribbon. I looked in the /dev directory and didnt find my entered data of mkdir /dev/scd1. and i have genuine copy of dvds in the drive for testing. I have restarted the computer and getting an error of "mount: special device /dev/scd1 does not exist"

    any ideals?

    Try making one master and the other slave or cable select and slave. When I have more time tomorrow I will look at mine and tell you exactly how I have it set up.
