Installed second Hard drive now CD/DVD will not mount

Postby Kittum on Thu Jul 23, 2009 12:18 pm

Using Mint 6

I installed a second hard drive that seems to be doing well. My problem is that if I put any playable media in the CD/DVD drive it will not mount.

Another interesting tidbit, I can still use the CD/DVD drive to burn copies and make ISO's using the burner software Brasero.

I wonder if I created a conflict in the fstab file. Here is a copy and paste of it.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda1
UUID=99b24828-d86d-4c63-9dfe-466727770755 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/sda5
UUID=d07bc61e-18f4-4cc3-b62d-5dbe8678cd39 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media ext3 defaults 1 2

Here is some stuff I copied and pasted from terminal that I gathered from this thread
viewtopic.php?f=49&t=29740 .

mplayer dvd://

I did not like the looks from Vista and its sequel is an abuse of the number 7!

This is wrong
/dev/sdb1 /media ext3 defaults 1 2

You can't mount directly in media you must use a subfolder like /media/my_drive
This is also the reason for you problems, but I'm surprised that you could use the DVD drive at all
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
