Hello, I am trying to mount and read data from my cdrom drive from ubuntu 10.10 running in vmware.  It's not working and I can't figure out why.   The CD of course works from the windows side.

What am I doing wrong here?  

What is device sr0 its referring to?

How do I make this work?


$ ls /media/
CD  floppy  floppy0

$ ls /dev/cd*
cdrom   cdrom1  

$ sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/CD
mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device

$ sudo mount /dev/cdrom1 /media/CD
mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device

Open in new window

In vmware when you see the setting of virtual machine, is cdrom there in resources or you have selected iso file instead of cdrom over there at the time of installation.

If everything is fine then just execute the below given command to get it mount.

mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt
