Satya's blog - CD-ROM on ubuntu Ibex

Dec 19 2008 23:14 CD-ROM on ubuntu Ibex
Google-bait: On Ubuntu Ibex 8.10, with an IDE (PATA) CDROM/CD-RW drive, the drive is detected just fine, dvd+rw-mediainfo sees it, but on trying to mount it with Gnome I get messages like "Unable to mount media" and other things implying that there is no disc in the drive, as if the disc is not sensed. Adding this to /etc/fstab solves the problem:
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
