I'm new to linux. I installed Mandrake 10 and can't access my 2 scsi cd rom drives.
Ican ply audio cds fine but data cds appear blank. I used a mandrake 9 boot disk at install as the mandrake 10 disk didn't have scsi drivers. Could this be the problem?

Have you mounted your cdz before trying to open them.
do a
$mount /mnt/cdrom
$cd /mnt/cdrom
and there you can see your files...

If you can play audio CDs then the SCSI controller drivers should be loading. The device ID for SCSI CDROM drives should be /dev/scd0 and /dev/scd1. Try mounting:

mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

Also post your /etc/fstab file.
