I have a problem with my Mitsumi FX001D. If I mount a cdrom with a
capacity <540MB I have no problems. Trying to mount a cdrom with
higher capacity (~635MB) the cdrom-drive causes problems. After
several tries mounting succeeds. A lot of messages appear in
random order like :
can't read superblock, data time out, no such device, /dev/mcd
already mounted or busy.
I'm sorry, I don't remember the messages exactly.
Reading from the cdrom takes sometimes a lot of time.
Most of the time it needs 5 retries to access the data.
Is this a problem of my hardware or of the kernel(1.1.18)?
The Mitsumi-drive is connected to a Soundblaster16-ASP-MultiCD.
The drive is correctly recognized by the kernel during boot.
'cat /proc/dev' tells me that the device 'mcd' exists.
I created the device with 'mknod /dev/mcd b 23 0'.
I mount with 'mount -t iso9660 /dev/mcd /cdrom'.
'/cdrom' is a directory.
Thanks for any help.
