Thread: CD drives and SuSE 8.1

    CD drives and SuSE 8.1

    I am running SuSE 8.1.

    Before I upgraded from SuSE 7.3, I was able to pop a music CD into the CD-ROM drive and start a CD application and play the music. Now I can't.

    When I talked to SuSE Tech support, they gave me a command to type:
    xmms /dev/cdrom

    That really isn't very user friendly for my wife and just plain hassling to just get to listen to music.

    What can I do? The error that I get when I put a CD in and try to mount the drive is:
    Could not mount device. The reported error was:
    /dev/cdrecorder: Input/output error
    mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified

    If I start the KsCD application, it constantly says that the disk is ejected. Probably because I can't mount the drive.

    Need some help.

    Ahh, suprised the techies at SuSE didnt tell you to try going to the configuration for XMMS and recheck the cdrom setup. Check that it states that /dev/cdrom is being used (provided that IS what you want to play it on, as opposed to a /dev/dvd ...). I saw that you have /dev/cdrecorder being listed. That would tell me that it is looking at the wrong drive.

    I could be wrong, bit check it any way.
