mounted CDROM does not show all files

mounted CDROM does not show all files

OS: Linux 1.3.72

I Have a SCSI-II CDROM (Toshiba 3105B). When I mount My CDROM and then
list (ls) the files in /cdrom (the CDROM partition) I see less file then
when I access the CDROM through windows-95.

Is there any reason why linux cannot access all the files on the cdrom as
windows-95

I tried the same CD on my laptop (different CDROM, same kernel). I had the
problem.

Any Idea why, or How this problem can be fixed

The standard Linux CDROM driver is not suited for multisession CDs. There
are drivers around which can handle multisession but I don't remember the
name. Check out the CDROM HowTo.
When I write CDs, I write them in a single session, so Linux can read them.
The usual DOS drivers can handle multisession CDs as far as I know.

The typical dos or Win95 drivers do not.  The DOS drivers with MSCDEX
usually only see the first session.  The Win95 drivers usually see only
the last session.  I understand some special drivers are available, but
have never seen them or heard of a source.

I looked at the CDROM howTo I could not find a reference for multisession CD's

Any one knows where I can get one?

Thanks

1. mount /mnt/cdrom ==> mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device

Hello,

I'm in trouble again.   My cdrom on RH6.0 used to mount using command-line
or linuxconf.

Now suddenly its stopped working -   when I try to mount using  "mount
/mnt/cdrom"  I
get rebuffed with :

   #mount  /mnt/cdrom
     mount:  the kernel does not recognize /dev/cdrom as a block device
                    (maybe 'insmod driver'? )

# insmod iso9660
    insmod:  iso9660: no module by that name found.

Linuxconf tells me its mounted successfully but obviously is failing in the
background.

It is unfortunate for me that Linux is giving me these problems as I am only
a beginner
really.   sigh!

thanks for expert advice...
