View Full Version : Problem with cd-rom drives after moving to 2.6
20th November 2003, 02:23 AM
I have an abit nf7-s mobo and compiled the 2.6 kernel, and, with much help, got almost everything working. However, my two cd drives (one CD-R/W and one DVD/CD-RW) are not functional. The kernel sees them, as evidenced at boot up, but I don't know what to do to mount them or whatever is necessary to have the function as they did under 2.4.
Any help is appreciated.

Please post the output of
dmesg | grep -i ide-cdrom
There should be a line like this:
hdc: attached ide-cdrom driver.
This means your cdrom dev is /dev/hdc...

in that particular case,
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
should work for your first cdrom drive. Under 2.4 your CDRW was probably recognized/named differently because it is treated as psuedo-scsi (ide-scsi driver).
