How to mount CD ROM and cd writer in linux
« on: August 27, 2005, 07:21:41 PM »
I have fedora core1 installed, Somehow during installation I managed not to add support for them so after installation I am not able to access them. I found that there is no entry in /etc/fstab for them.

I tried to found the location of my drives using the following command..
Code: [Select]
ls -l /dev/cdrom*and it gave me following result:
Code: [Select]
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            8 Mar 30  2004 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdb
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            9 Mar 30  2004 /dev/cdrom1 -> /dev/scd0

Hey.. I also found that my installation is more than a year old ;) .
So now what I have to do so that I can access, mount my cdroms ? also can use cdwriter ?
