problem mounting ATAPI /IDE CDROM

What could go wrong? I ty to do 'mount -t iso9660 -r /dev/hdc /cdrom', Linux responses as " /dev/hdc is not a block device ". By doing 'dmesg' it shows that " cannot verify CDROM format" . But I have used the CDROM successfully for the entire Linux installation and the system scanning has indicated the validity of the /dev/hdc.
Please help. E-Mail: Henry.tse@alltel.com.
Thanks. Happy Holidays.

Try something different:  as root, do:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt

and see if that does the trick.

Unmount it as root:

umount /mnt

Maybe that will work for you.
Yeah - try, as root first,

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

try that - it should work for you
