    I am trying to block the CD drives in cent OS 6 (64x) and i did that

    1. cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/cdrom ;

    2 . mv cdrom.ko cdrom.ko.bak ;

    3. echo ‘blacklist sr_mod’ >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf ;

    4. echo ‘modprobe -r sr_mod’ >> /etc/rc.local ;

    Now CD rom is blocked as it’s not comming, But i have to unblock it so I removed the entry which I did in “/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf” and “/etc/rc.local” also rename the .ko file to its original one. and also rebooted the system.

    Now there is no file name cdrom , dvd ,sr0 ,hdc in /dev (All are missing ) now how can i mount a CD without them…So can i bring them back.

    Please help…
