Mint mounts cd in wrong directory

Postby symon1980 on Thu Mar 13, 2008 9:10 am

Hi peoples, i've just migrated over from ubuntu gnome, to Mint Kde, and so far i'm lovin it. i think its much
more improved over ubuntu/kubuntu. However, i have noticed that when i chuck a cd or dvd in the drive, and check the
directory to which its mounted, it says that it is located in system:/media/hdb/ when it is suppose to be /media/cdrom0
so obviously i cant 'cd' into the location unless i go to /media/cdrom0
is this a bug? i have never had this before. And how do i fix it if its possible within my desktop, otherwise i guess i'll try to send the info
on to the linux mint guys to fix the bug.
cheers
sincerely
Symon:)

I have this line in fstab
Code: Select all
/dev/hdb        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0       0

Check that you have the same in fstab - it seems to me that you have /media/hdb for some odd reason
And there is a large reddish banner telling you

/dev/hdb /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0

Your fstab looks ok
I did not notice the "system:" part of "system:/media/hdb/" before.
Where is this info found?

bash: cd: system:/media/hdb/: No such file or directory

if that helps :s

it don't exist, apparently
i can still view my cd's in /media/cdrom even though it tells me its mounted at /media/hdb or wotever it was.
if i cd into the directory it auto mounts to, it don't exist. therefore, when i for example.... try to install games through cedega or wotever, it asks
me for disc 2 etc, and it don't recognise it, cause its mounted in the wrong directory, so i can't install the game :(
heh
this is a weird glitch

I agree - there is no such file or directory in any Linux :)
You are doing something wrong - system should not be there at all
This is what I get
bash: cd: /media/hdb: No such file or directory
However if I do
cd /media/cdrom0
it works
You see hdb is a folder that should only exist under /dev

kaddy@mint-desktop:~$ cd /dev/hdb
bash: cd: /dev/hdb: Not a directory

lol

argh. ahwell. i've been remounting it manually to where i want it, but it was definatley telling me it was mounted
in system:/media/hdb/
i've recently switched back to gnome anyways, kde does my head in sometimes. lol
gnome works perfect for me :)
