For some reason or another all of my physical drives and partitions (including the Windows partitions) are mounted within Fedora 8. My Sony DVD burner however is not. I found this link
and as root I performed the following command
ata1.01: ATAPI: SONY DVD RW DRU-800A, KY01, max UDMA/66
scsi 0:0:1:0: CD-ROM SONY DVD RW DRU-800A KY01 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
So, it's there, it's just not mounted. It does not appear in the fstab file:
LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-sdc9 swap swap defaults 0 0
I followed the instructions up to the point when it told me to enter
ls -ltr |grep cdrom
However, nothing was echoed back to me.
What am I doing wrong, and how do I fix this?
