Re: Can't mount CD-ROM SOLVED!!

Well then, no, you haven't really demonstrated much at all.

Typically, playing music CDs is negotiated directly between the CDROM
drive and your soundcard.  There's no intermediation of the kernel,
filesystems, or even your sound configuration involved (though some
systems require a working sound config to *start* playing a music CD,
you're not actually going through the sound devices to play it).

You'll have to report back with a data CD how you mounted it or what
failed to work.  Data and music disks (Sounds of Slashdot excepted) are
two different animals.
