Basic info:

Suse 7.3, ext3 file system

1 CD reader

1 CD-R

Both using SCSI emulation

Reads data CD's no problem

When trying to run X-CDRoast, which has worked great for almost a year, it
reads the CD, but won't write. Same with KonCD. KDE media player, XMMS all
either lock up, or won't play.

Worked fine until that dang multiple power outage over a 4 hour period
(drained UPS battery, so it shut down hard, restarted later, at least 3
times. I guess ext3 isn't a cure all).

When mounting via the desktop icons, I get the following error:

"Could not mount device. The reported error was: /dev/scd0: Input/output
error mount: I could not determine the file system type, and none was

Not to appear dumb (which at times comes quite naturally to me, ) but I
didn't do a mount from the command line as I don't know what file system
music CD's use.

I would suspect there is a place that all of these programs access and/or run
the readable file systems.

Where do I go from here?

--If I understand correctly, you are having trouble with music CD's only. You
do not have to mount music CD's.
