Example:

Class I H/W Path Driver S/W State H/W Type
===============================================================
disk 0 0/0/2/0.0.0.0 sdisk CLAIMED DEVICE
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /dev/rdsk/c0t0d0

create the mount point
# mkdir /cdrom

mount the cdrom
# mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /cdrom

Re: mounting dvd drive

/dev/c0t0d0 should be /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 - right?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: mounting dvd drive

Hi,

Try

"mount /dev/dsk/c0t0d0 /dvd"

You missed "dsk"

Re: mounting dvd drive

In many cases when "mount" fails, "ls -l" on
its principal arguments is a good place to
start. I've seldom found the error messages
from "mount" to be particularly enlightening.

As usual, showing actual commands with their
actual output can be more helpful than vague
descriptions and interpretations. Copy+paste
was a clever invention. You should consider
using it more.
