    Ahhh! hdc is gone!

    Last night my cdrom drive was working fine, I was ripping CD's etc. Now today, I turned on my computer and there is no /dev/hdc or /dev/hdc1, there are on the other hand /dev/hdc2 through /dev/hdc20. Now this means, that my cdrom drive is basically unusable. What would be the best way to recreate these devices, should I download the LFS script and use that?

    Don't the /dev/hd* files correspond to hard disks?? So wouldn't your CD-ROM be mounted to something else... Although if you know for a fact that you were using hdc for your CD-ROM then I have no idea what the heck happened

    /dev/hd* files correspond to IDE devices as far as I know. eg hda is pri master hdb pri slave hdc secondary master etc. I do know for a fact that I was using hdc (well, actually a simbolic link from /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdc).

    I just double checked, directed /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdd (my backup cdrom drive) and it works (makes funny noises because the drive is dying, but works).

    It's not working yet. MAKEDEV doesn't seem to want to do the trick. any other suggestions?

    You could try the following:
    Code:
    mknod -m 660 /dev/hdc b 22 0
    mknod -m 660 /dev/hdc1 b 22 1
    but it's a bit weird that they disappeared like that ???
