I have recently installed RedHat 6.0 on my Intel PC system.
The only thing I can't get to work is my DVD drive. At this point, I'd
be happy to have it work as an ATAPI CD-ROM.
Here are some details of my DVD:
The drive model is a Sony DVD-ROM DDU200E
It is jumpered as the master on my secondary IDE controller.
I have the iso9660 file system and CD-ROM drivers loaded into the
kernel (to the best of my knowledge).
"dmesg" reveals my DVD might be recognized, at least I get the message
hda: WDC AC313000R, ATA DISK drive
hdc: yayayayayayayayayayayayaya, ATAPI UNKNOWN (type 31) drive
hdd: IOMEGA ZIP 100 ATAPI Floppy, ATAPI FLOPPY drive
So my hard disk and internal IDE zip drive are recognized and I can
use them just fine.
However, I can't seem to mount a CD. Here is the command I use:
#mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/hdc /cdrom
here is the error message I get:
mount: /dev/hdc is not a valid block device
Please reply with any suggestions you might have
