Does anyone know a simple reason I should have no luck playing a cd in 8.0
when everthing worked fine on default settings in 7.3.
KSCD shows "ejected" on its display. Wont load or eject with the tray
widget. Flashes 'Closing" fo an instant then returns to "Ejected" Dosn't
matter if tyhe tray is in or out.
In Gnome the CD plaer reads "searching" Then says "input output error."
I tried cdparanoia to see if it would rip, if it wouldn't play. It won't.
Cdparanoias exhaustive drive search function retuns with "drive exists but is
not accessible" In Konqueror audiocd:/ gives me a no such website message.
Clicking the small CD icon in KDE yeilds
Could not mount device. The reported error was: dev/cdrom: Input/output
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified.
What baffles me most is that the cdrom works fine fo loading software. Ejects
on cue and everything. I tried digging around a little, but I'm no wizzard.
I looked at SuSE support database and found an old article about a similar
situation.Checking permissions I saw:
pat@linux:~> ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Jun 1 01:20 /dev/cdrom ->
Seems fine.But no help. As root I looked at Yast hardware details and
found the CD-ROM mount point to be "/dev/sr0"
So could it be the mount point is wrong by default somehow? It seems unlikely
that mine would be the only one...
...and the CD-R works fine...or at least mounts up when I click the icon in
The CD-R icon mounts /dev/cdrecorder to /dev/sr0 and opens
fstab looks like:
dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
mtab with the CD-R mounted:
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrecorder iso9660 ro,nosuid,nodev,user=pat 0 0
Should I change a link somewhere? Or suffer in silence while sitting next
to $70 worth of new CD's?
