    Input output error while playing CD

    I cannot play my cd's with my cdrom but I can listen music from the other partition in my drive.My output while cat /dev/cdrom is like this.

    linux:~ # cat /dev/cdrom
    cat: /dev/cdrom: Input/output error

    Can anyone tell me what is difference between /dev and /media ?

    Thanks in advance

    By "cannot play my cd's" do you mean that it simply will not play them, or that it tries but you don't hear them? Describe exactly what you do to try and play a CD.

    /dev is where devices are actually stored, /media is likely symlinks or mount points for your drives. It's distribution specific.

    It simply doesn't play them it gives me this error **/dev/cdrecorder: Input/output error
    mount: you must specify the filesystem type** I do not have ideas on the simlinks, I know it is use for linking files but how do I know which files to link....does that mean, I have to link /dev and /cdrom or /mnt and cdrom? can you enlight me chsh ?? thanks so much for the help.


    If you want to know my /etc/fstab it is as follows.

    /dev/hdb2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
    /dev/hdb1 /data1 auto noauto,user 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=iso8859-1 0 0
    /dev/hda3 /windows/D ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=iso8859-1 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /windows/E ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=iso8859-1 0 0
    /dev/hdb3 swap swap pri=42 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs noauto 0 0
    /dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto
    ro,noauto,user,exec
    0 0
    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom media ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
    /dev/dvd /media/dvd auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
