Hello,

my combo drive.
I tried 'mount /mnt/cdrom'
but of no result.
I will be obliged if
anybody can help me
to sort out the problem.
Thanks.

The mounting directory for devices has changed to /media vs. the old standard of /mnt. Also, a lot of media is not mounted by the label that the media inside the device contains. Sy you have a DVD labeled. "My Favorite DVD", the mountpoint would /media plus the disc label.

Check the entries in /media to see if your device is listed within that directory. Sometimes the DVD or whatever gets labeled as a disk, thus /media/disk would be your mountpoint.

I think remembering /mnt/cdrom or /mnt/dvd would be more rational, but things change.
