    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.
