Thread: CD basics

    CD basics

    When you type eject to eject the CD ROM what do you type to get the system to read the next CD? It doesn't just read it automatically.

    mount /dev/cd0 ( or whatever your device is )
    That may be the problem. If the device is improperly unmounted when the disc is ejected, you'll need to remount it.

    If it asks for a filesystem type it should be: mount -t iso9660 /dev/cd0

    I could be wrong, as I'm a newbie.

    That sounds about right, though its /dev/cdrom on my system, or the physical drive name (hdc/hdd etc)
    I think most current distros also have "supermount" which mounts the disk when you enter the mnt directory

    /dev/cdrom is right... both my linux boxes aren't accesible right now, so I couldn't check.
