Thread: Mounting CDROMs

    Mounting CDROMs

    Just a quick question... I am using Mandrake v9. When I explore the /mnt folder (to view what I have on my Winbloze partitions, as I have yet to fully get rid of it), it takes FOREVER for the folder contents to be displayed. What seems to be holding the process up is that it is seeking my empty DVD-ROM. Seeing that I NEVER use the DVD player (in fact, I have no idea why it is in the system) is there a way I can permanently disable it so that it won't waste so much time searching an empty drive?

    when i put the disc in, nothing happens. however, after the disc is in, the /mnt folder contents pop right up. it seems that the computer gets stuck trying to see what is in the dvd drive (when it is empty).

    Re:Mounting CDROMs

    Maybe you could delete the dvd directory in /mnt ??
    add it again if you want to mess with it later
    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P

    Re:Mounting CDROMs

    I tried that and it wouldn't let me (I was logged on as root, but...) I deleted the fstab entry and saved it, yet that didn't work. When I reopened fstab, the entries were 'magically' there... this is probably more annoying than anything else I have come across. It is sad, really...

    Where are you mounting the windows partition?

    Re:Mounting CDROMs

    Windows XP ends up being mounted as /mnt/nt, win98 SE as /mnt/windows (both are on hda2 and 1 respectively), while Linux is mounted on hdb. It is odd... it doesn't do that with my burner, only the DVD. I may end up removing the DVD drive anyway... I never use it.

    well, if you don't use it, just remove the folder and the corresponding line in /etc/fstab

    So, I would just log on as root, then delete the /mnt/cdrom2 folder, then delete the line in fstab? Will that be permanent, or will the system detect the drive when I reboot, add add those items back... ?
