Audio CDs not mounting

Added by Todd Dreadmeat over 5 years ago

Hi guys, do we have any special tricks for mounting audio CDs?
I find about half of my CDs won't mount, does anything in here look obviously wrong?

Audacious 3.5

plug@gateway:~$ uname -a
Linux gateway 3.2.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Jun 11 17:24:18 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

plug@gateway:~$ cat /etc/fstab [all hashed out bar the last 2 lines, but this board is putting numbers there instead of hashtags]
/etc/fstab: static file system information.

Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

<file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/ was on /dev/sda2 during installation
UUID=726bd3bd-dbce-4e04-8594-a9de5dc39dc0 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

You don't really "mount" an audio CD since there is no filesystem on it. Playing an audio CD just involves reading raw data from it. That said, there should not be any special tricks necessary. Have you already ruled out the possibility of a failing CD drive? In my experience, they often start failing to read certain disks a while before they get to the point of not reading any disk at all.

Hey man, sorry I didn't see your response! [I thought I was subscribed to this?]
The drive has just started failing to burn blank discs now too, no idea what's going on

Audio discs will 'load' most of the time but some just won't
Blank discs mount automagically without issue.

As jlindgren previously mentioned, it is probably a failing drive. I would just replace the drive with a $20 one from a vendor of your choice.

Our bug tracker and forums don't do email notifications for some reason. I'm not sure if it was never set up, or something broke it along the way.

The bug tracker sends e-mails, at least for me. :)

Yeah no alerts for subscribed threads is annoying.
I'll just get another drive, this thing is making noises too...
