SCSI Cd-rom device name?
I got a SCSI DVD drive for my computer to use as my CD-rom drive and
expand to DVD in the future. Well,it gets detected just find but it's
device name is /dev/sr0 (it's the first device on the chain). Shouldn't
it be /dev/scd0 since it's basically a cd-rom drive? When I mount
/dev/sr0 I can't use a file system format. I can mount it alright, but
not using a filesystem to mount it has me a little worried since it's not
an ext2 filesystem. In fact, it fails the first time I try and mount it
and resets the SCSI bus. My guess was because the drive was sinning up
or something. Can anyone tell me why the drive is /sev/sr0, why I
don't need a filesystem to mount the drive, or why I'm having that oddity
the first time I try and mount the drive? TIA.
