as you see there is no cdrom or hdb in /dev directory.
what should i do after that?

for some reason the device is not created. Hm, do you have udev
yes i have udev installed.
what can be the reason of not creating devices?

Why do you set "hdb=ide-scsi" (see above). Is it scsi?
it is a cd-writer. i think debian knows a cd-writer is connected and loads the module ide-scsi, but it doesn't create hdb,cdrom or sr* under /dev/ directory.

it is not problem for me to use my cd-writer as a cd-rom. i wanna use it as a cdrom. After solving this problem, i will try to use it as a cd-writer, but my first aim is, to mount my cd-rom. OK? :)
