    CDRW and DVD and Floppy not working sorta.

    file:/mnt/floppy doesn't seem to exist anymore

    Same for CDRW and DVD

    This from /ect/fstab: filesystem table


    #
    # filesystem mountpoint type options dump pass
    /dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1

    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /floppy vfat defaults,user,noauto,showexec,umask=022 0 0
    usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs defaults 0 0
    sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0
    /dev/cdrom1 /cdrom1 iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0
    /dev/dvd /dvd iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0
    /dev/cdaudio /cdaudio iso9660 defaults,ro,user,noexec,noauto 0 0
    # Added by KNOPPIX
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 vfat noauto,users,exec,umask=000 0 0
    # Added by KNOPPIX
    /dev/hda3 none swap defaults 0 0


    What did I screw-up? I can burn CD's with K3b and they will work if live CD's and I re-boot.

    The mount points in your fstab show them mounting at:
    /floppy
    /cdrom
    /cdrom1
    /dvd
    rather than:
    /mnt/floppy
    /mnt/cdrom (and so on.)

    Hmm...mine /etc/fstab doesn't have any /mnt/device entries but it works OK.

    Fatal Error, try changing /etc/fstab to use the actual device name rather than /dev/cdrom. For instance, mine looks like:

    /dev/hdc /cdrom udf,iso9660 defaults,user,noauto,ro 0 0
    /dev/hdd /cdrom1 udf,iso9660 defaults,user,noauto,ro 0 0

    For the CDs, and...

    /dev/fd0 /floppy vfat,auto defaults,user,noauto 0 0

    For the floppy.
