Data can't mount cdrom

Hi there

I am trying to mount a cdrom using:

mount /cdrom

and I get the error:
mount: mount point cannot be determined

If I try the command

mount cdrom /cdrom

nfs mount: nfs file system; use [host:]path

I tried running mountall

and mountall -F NFS

but to no avail

OS helps.


if you have vold running for solaris is should auto mount.

remember cdroms use a hsfs (iso9660 <or something liek that)

so if the cdrom is not auto mounted you will have to specify which fs is on the removeable media.

Try using this instead:


mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0c /cdrom



It worked for me on my system which runs FreeBSD 4.9...


...the above example is assumming you're tryint to mount the cd on the first drive if you have more then one drive.

Log on as /root
create a directory at root called /cdrom - This will be your mount point

identify the device file by entering:

# ioscan -funC disk
You should see your CDROM output something like this /dev/rdsk/cXtXd0 with cXtXd0 being the device name which will be different for your machine but similar. record that so you don't forget.
Then enter -
# mount /dev/disk/(device Name) /cdrom

I hope this is right...I am answering from home but did this at work. I'll check tomorrow.
