NEC 260 IDE CD-ROM

Post by richm.. » Thu, 28 Dec 1995 04:00:00



I can install and run Linux just fine off the NEC 260 drive, but when I try to mount it, i get the
following error:

myhost:/etc# mount -t iso9660 /dev/hd1a /cdrom
mount: /dev/hd1a is not a block device

I have the Linux distribution CD in the drive which is ISO 9660 and checked my /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda3        swap     swap        defaults   1   1
/dev/hda2        /        ext2        defaults   1   1
/dev/hda1        /dosc    msdos       defaults   1   1
/dev/hd1a        /cdrom   iso9660     ro         1   1
none             /proc    proc        defaults   1   1

what the heck is going on?

thanks.

Geez guy,
        I'v been having the same problem and whenever I tell someone that I
can't use my ATAPI CDR, NEC 260, they look at me like I'm retuarded...
I am in the process of downloading the latest version of GCC so that I
can recompile my kernel to 1.2.13.  In a previous article (either in
setup or hardware) someone said that he switched his ATAPI CDR (he
didn't indicate the model) jumper on the back of the CDR from slave to
Master.  This is of course for the same configuration of a CDR as I
have... I have 2 IDE controllers, My HD is on the
primary-pci-ide-atapi controller, and my CDR is on the second IDE
controller, I don't know wheather the cdr jumper is set to master or
slave, but I am going to switch it to master.  You might want to do
this also if recompiling the kernel dosen't work.  You should only
switch the cd rom to master if it is on its own controller though,
like I do.
73's ttyl, I'll be following the thread.

If someone has any other suggestions please help us!!!!   I'll tell
you what works for me.
