[Closed] Strange Fstab

Postby ane champenois » 29 Aug 2013 08:16

Hello,
My DVD player doesn't want anymore music or films :evil:
Looking into /etc/fstab, it countains this:

Code: Select all

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc	/proc	proc	defaults	0	0
# /dev/sda1
UUID=c10045f8-f75e-4128-a6e6-44521dc3f63f	/home	ext4	rw,errors=remount-ro	0	0
# /dev/sda3
UUID=ade06203-3549-493a-8afc-490a1048a19d	/	ext4	rw,errors=remount-ro	0	1
# /dev/sda2
UUID=80c6ffdd-71ca-495c-ab61-29f0495e6600	swap	swap	sw	0	0
No Cdrom/DVD :shock:
Don't you think there is a problem somewhere? I'm lost.... :?
They did not know it was impossible so they did it.

I think your problem is settings.
My /etc/fstab

Code: Select all

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc	/proc	proc	defaults	0	0
# /dev/sda6
UUID=f2d14b6a-e658-4828-851a-3f856cbf2bf1	/	ext4	rw,errors=remount-ro	0	1
# /dev/sda11
UUID=bc6d6ef3-6bf0-41a0-87f4-fc87cbcc4264	swap	swap	sw	0	0

# /dev/sda10 Data
UUID=7b13165b-a6a1-48db-994f-86af9ad37c91	/media/jim	ext4	rw,errors=remount-ro	0 1
My optical Drive works perfectly. there is a section in settings for removable drives where you can set a check box to automatically mount. That might be where the problem lies.

Thanks Smitty1 for your answer. :) But unfortunately, it isn't a configuration proble, but my DVD player is broken :cry:
So no solution except changing it.

ane champenois: It has not been necessary to have a cdrom entry in the /etc/fstab file for some time now. Mounting of CD/DVD drives should now happen automatically if the device has been detected at boot.

In order to eliminate any configuration problem I suggest you try rebooting the PC with a Live SolydXK DVD in the drive and see if a live session loads and starts up. If this is OK then it verifies that the CD/DVD drive works and you have a configuration problem with your installed system.

Otherwise, you could check the BIOS boot options to make sure the CD/DVD drive is enabled. If the drive still does not load then replacement may be the best option, although sometimes the lens can be successfully cleaned and functionality restored.

Yes, I discoved that a few days ago.

impossible: no boot possible from the DVD. :(

BIOS options are well configured. I'll try to clean it; if it doesn't work, i'll give up.
I won't replace it because the screen have already problems (vertical color lines) so i'll better save my data to avoid loosing it; perhaps my old laptop is not so far to the end. :cry:
Thanks for that Zill :geek:

[edit] The drive is alive :D I clean it and...it works now as usual. Happy to see I spent my time for something!
