I just installed Blag 19999.00081 and I like it a lot. The one problem is that if I try to mount anything in my DVD-ROM drive, I get the error :

mount: No medium found

This happens whether I'm logged in as root or as a user (cbw). When I put an audio CD into the drive, CD Player reports that the drive is open. In each case, when I put a disk into the drive, the LED comes on and the disk spins and then nothing. I also have a CD writer which seems to be working fine and can mount/read all the disks I've tried.

The hardware browser correctly identifies the two drives :

JLMS XJ-HD166S Device /dev/hdc
SONY CD-RW CRX255E Device /dev/hdd


cat /etc/fstab

I tried changing the ownership of /dev/hdc to root.disk and changing the permissions, but it didn't make any difference. Rebooting the machine resets the ownership/permissions, I'm not sure where this happens.

It occurs to me that this might be a hardware problem, which is just coincident on my installing Blag, but I'm hoping I've missed something.

Sorry for the long posting, but I wanted to give as much detail as possible. Any help would be appreciated.

Try:

Code:
mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom


Also, is it a regular data CD? You can't mount audio CDs like a data disk.

Also, to make sure the drive mapping is right, try:

Code:
eject /dev/cdrom
eject /dev/cdrom1

I'm sorry, I didn't make myself clear

/dev/hdc is the DVD drive.
/dev/hdd is the CD writer.
If I put a data CD into the DVD drive
Code:
mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
mount: No medium found

which is my problem

Code:
mount /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
mount: No medium found

which is not surprising as there isn't anything in the drive.

If I put a data CD into the CD writer
Code:
mount /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom

mounts successfully

I didn't try to mount an audio CD. I was saying that I can neither mount a data CD nor play an audio CD. I can play an audio CD in the CD writer (although it's not connected to the sound card).

Code:
eject /dev/cdrom

opens the DVD drive.

Code:
eject /dev/cdrom1

opens the CD writer. So the mapping is as expected

Long posts with good info == good++ :)

It looks like you've done everything correctly. I'm not sure what to say... hmm....

Perhaps add "-t iso9600" to mount command, but I don't think this will solve it either. Perhaps try a variety of CDs just to see if it's just a particular burned one that's failing.

Sry I don't have a better answer, but I don't see that anything is mis-configured.
