how do i mount a cd rom on rpi?

Recommended Posts



Try using a SATA-USB or IDE-USB adapter to connect your CDROM to raspberry pi. After connecting,make sure you mount the device using

"sudo mount /dev/*** /folderyouwanttomapthedrive

*** - this can be sda or sdb or anything else. Before plugging drive into raspbery,go to /dev, list the folders using 'dir'. Plug in,and then do again a 'dir' to see what's new. What is new is exactly the *** you have to mount


Good luck!
