    "/mnt/cdrom" to find the cd rom... and i guessing "/mnt/dvd/", of course, if you cant find it, then just look threw the file /dev/ to find something simular...

    Check your fstab, but it usually is /cdrom and /dvd. What are you trying to do?

    Are you running live cd or a hd install? You cannot mount an audio cd, must be opened with a player- kaffeine,xine,xmms. You can mount a dvd by clicking the icon but it will only show you the contents of the files and not run the movie, this also must be done with a player.

    Are you using the 2.6 kernel? cdrom & dvd are both mounted by automounter, the mount point is /cdrom & /dvd but this was not properly implemented in Knoppix 3.4. The devices are actually /dev/scd0 & /dev/scd1 (I think, scd0 is correct for cdrom but I don't have a dvd drive) but the system is set up to call these deices /dev/cdrom & /dev/dvd. These need to be linked to /dev/scd0 & /dev/scd1. If you have done a debian style install I think all you should have to do is create the links:
    Code:
    ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom 
    ln -s /dev/scd1 /dev/dvd
    If you have done a knoppix style install this will get deleted with each boot. I solved the problem by editing /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig (approximately line 22
    Code:
    if ! checkbootparam "nohwsetup"; then
    rm -f /dev/cdrom* /dev/cdwriter* /dev/mouse* /dev/modem* /dev/scanner* \
          /etc/sysconfig/i18n /etc/sysconfig/keyboard /etc/sysconfig/knoppix \
          2>/dev/null
          
    # modified by CrashedAgain create link for /dev/cdrom for 2.6 kernel only
     if [ "${KERNEL:0:3}" == "2.6" ]; then 
     ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrom
     fi 
    
    fi
    Everything should work with the 2.4 kernel though; if it doesn't you may have some other problems.

    media player/playlists etc.

    Sorry, this was no meant to be a post to this post....................

    I am using juk as my music player (wanted to use amarok but that's another story!!!), but when i press play i get nothing.

    I am missing something here as when i used kscd to play cds i just put the cd in and it saw it, listed the tracks etc. Also how do i transfer the cd to the player with all the track listing etc so i can play it straight from the pc without the cd in. I do not seem to be able to mount the cdrom/dvdrom drive to be able to tranfer the files, get the following error message............

    Unable to run the command specified. The file or folder file:/mnt/cdrom does not exist.

    What i want to do going forward is tranfer all my cd's to the pc and play them via a media player with tarcks listed etc, but i am stumbling early on and really do not want to resort to XP.

    New to linux, home built pc, celeron 1.8 , 256mb, knoppix hdd install.

    Cheers Steve.

    location of mount points....3.3

    hello, I see it has been a while since you posted, not sure wether you gave up, or found the solution.

    In case you gave up, or didn't post your solution for others, I'll print my findings on the same problem.

    I'm using a knoppix 3.3 hd-install (debian type); k7 triton motherboard (Gigabyte);amd2000.

    I found my dvd and cd-rom's at....
    /dev/hdd & /dev/hdc
    ....respectively.

    then I made the appropriate links.

    hope it helps,
    ciao for now,
