Unmountable SCSI cdrom

    Here is my problem. I have a Compaq armada laptop model 1130T. This model had been upgraded to a 5 gig HD and has maximum ram at 80 megs. It does not have a built in cdrom so I acquired a PCMCIA cdrom for it. This cdrom is a Panasonic kxl-d745 a combination sound card and cdrom solution.

        With this cdrom I was able to successfully load Redhat 7.2 onto this laptop and after much work I have gotten the video working very nicely. Now I have a problem that I cannot mount the cdrom. I have spent a week with google and sourceforge trying to work this problem out so I now turn to the mailing lists to ask for it.

        Details of what I know. On bootup PCMCIA services and scsi services are starting. There are errors in the message log. Fstab and Mtab do not show any cdrom. Stab sees a device but has assigned it a device name of sr#0005 which I cannot mount. I have tried almost 50 different devices in the /dev with no luck. I have also tried removing and re-inserting the card (I get the two beeps indicating it was successful) I have also tried the other pcmcia slot. I do have power to the cdrom and it says it is ready. I have not changed a single thing with the cd-rom since it was used to install the OS.  I have included all pertinent file information below this message. I would greatly appreciate any help in getting this to work as it is driving me nuts. It worked perfectly with the pcmcia install boot disks, why wont it work now?

    Also if anyone has a clue about the hard drive error in the log I would appreciate being able to clear that also.

      Hi,

      your lsmod output doesn't mention the "sr" module, which is needed for accessing the CD drive. Later, in your "messages", we see a lot of "insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.7-10/kernel/drivers/scsi/sr_mod.o: insmod block-major-11 failed ".

      If you solve your insmod problem, I guess it will work automagically.

      I can't provide more ideas about how to make the insmod work. Try "insmod -v path_to/sr_mod".

      Hope this help,
      Charles

      HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA

      If we can't laugh at ourselves who can we laugh at. I found the problem.  The panasonic kxl-d745 I am using  is actually a hybrid device being both a sound card and a cd player. The cd player unit has speakers built into it that the laptop can utilize for playback.I was using a music cd for testing. the idea being I could test sound and cd at the same time. In doing so I have found a quirk in the way that the panasonic kxl-d745 works.

      Apparently if the scsi cable is connected to this unit it will not play a music cd. Since it has built in speakers the designers must have assumed if you wanted to play a music cd you would simply unhook the player and use it as a stand alone unit. With the cable inserted saving laptop power. Once I unhooked the cable and re-inserted the disk it played fine.

      I then hooked the cable back to the unit and inserted a data cd and was able to mount it with no problems. I read the data both command line and in X windows.

      I am laughing at myself because in the week I was working on this I never thought to switch out the cd I was using to see if that makes a difference. Such a simple, obvious, procedure now.

      Figure I would pass this info on in case anyone else runs into this problem, and also wanted to thank charles for his reply, it was your suggestion that got me started down the correct path to finding this.
