Re: Debian cannot find the CD

You must have a cdrom directory in root.  mkdir cdrom. That might solve your problem. Make sure your drive is an ATPI.

Subject: Debian cannot find the CD

Hello all
Debian cannot find the CD drive (though Windows 98 can) so I have used the vi editor to change the file system table. Unfortunately, the CD is still not being found by Debian.
I have changed the line in /etc/fstab
/dev/cdrom    /cdrom     iso9660 defaults,noauto         0  0
/dev/cdrom    /cdrom     iso9660 defaults,noauto,users        0  0
After restarting the computer, putting a cd in its drive and double clicking on the cd icon, I get the message:
"mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist"
If anyone can see what I might be doing wrong then please let me know.
