I tried to burn a cd. But k3b doesn't see the empty disc. I also tried to mount a cdrom which I know is burned. Here I get the following errors:

Code:
 As simple user:
mount /mnt/cdrom/
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified

As root:
 mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom/
mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist



Here is my /etc/fstabmore /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# noatime turns off atimes for increased performance (atimes normally aren't
# needed; notail increases performance of ReiserFS (at the expense of storage
# efficiency). It's safe to drop the noatime options if you want and to
# switch between notail / tail freely.
#
# See the manpage fstab(5) for more information.
#

# <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/pass>

# NOTE: If your BOOT partition is ReiserFS, add the notail option to opts.
/dev/sda1 /boot ext3 defaults,noatime 1 2
/dev/sda3 / reiserfs notail,noatime 0 1
/dev/sda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user 0 0
/dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user 0 0

/dev/dvdrw /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults,devmode=0666 0 0

# NOTE: The next line is critical for boot!
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

# glibc 2.2 and above expects tmpfs to be mounted at /dev/shm for
# POSIX shared memory (shm_open, shm_unlink).
# (tmpfs is a dynamically expandable/shrinkable ramdisk, and will
# use almost no memory if not populated with files)
none /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0
[/code]

I don't see any error in dmesg.

What is the problem?

Suposing it worked before, could it be that your drive just broke? Perhaps the plug fell out of the socket? That'd explain why /dev/cdrom doesn't exist.

I had a problem before. It was repaired, worked for a week/two and now it doesn't anymore. I pulled out the cdrom 2 weeks ago. Someone rubbed the contacts with pencil rubber and it worked. Before that incident, it worked. It's a relatively new dvdrom. ~1 year. optiarc

Can you tell me what kind of plug are you talking about? A picture would be nice. in the last 2 days I heard noises from the cdrom, even though no cd/dvd was inside.

Uh... sorry, forgot about this thread.

I mean the plug (actually any plug) that connects your CD-Rom drive to your motherboard. It apparently isn't the power line else you wouldn't be able to open your drive.
So if it is a SATA, maybe the the SATA cable fell of. Mine are a bit loose and one fell off of my HDD once.
