I'm having trouble with my CD-RW drive. On boot, I get a slew of
"hdd: driver not present" messages. I can burn to it with XCDRoast,
but I can't mount the cd after burning it. (It mounts fine in my
CDROM, though -- hdc -- so I know the burn went OK.) The message I
get trying to mount is
mount: /dev/cdrom2 is not a valid block device
The /dev entries are like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 May 3 14:10 cdrom -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 May 9 00:04 cdrom2 -> hdd
I saw a post here saying that Mandrake 7's got some fugly ide /
ide-scsi emulation set up here, and indeed I remember XCDRoast
configured to use the SCSI IDE driver mmc. So I changed the
/etc/fstab entry to use /dev/scd0 instead of /dev/cdrom2.
Great, it mounted fine. I unmounted the disk. When I tried to
mount it again later, I got
mount: /dev/scd0 has wrong major or minor number
What is going on here?
