    Question cdrom mount problem

    I can't mount my cdrom, I was using following commands :
    mount /dev/crdom /mnt/cdrom
    mount /dev/cdrom, but I'm getting message that mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist.
    Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

    When you want to mount on a directory, that dire4ctory should exist. When it does not exist, so make it. When you want to mount it on /mnt/cdom then (as root) do
    mkdir /mnt/cdrom
    Check that it is world readable else you normal users can not read it.

    BTW most people mount media that pass by in a directory in /media. But it is up to you if you mount it in /mnt/cdrom, /media/cdrom, /media/idontknow, /home/myuser/likethat/cd or wherever.

    I do not know which desktop you use (if any), but mostly the deskop is signaled by HAL that the CD is inserted and then HAL mounts it and the desktop tells the user it is there.

    Last of all the thoughts that came to my mind on seeing your post: when it is a musical CD it can not be mounted because it has no filesystem.
