Default /dev/cd0 many megabytes

I have a root partition of only 100m, as I always did. I just found out that the filesystem was full, and discovered this:
Code:
# ls -lah cd0
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  53.2M Jul 20 04:06 cd0
How can I solve this?
tks

That looks like some file that you made accidentally or some other program created.. it is not a device node, nor is it a file that exists on a 4.5 installation.

Copy it to your home directory, delete it from /dev, then try using file(1) to determine the contents, or examine it using a hex editor.. most likely it's data that was piped there by mistake.

I wouldn't worry about it.. delete it.

Code:
$ file cd0
cd0: ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data UDF filesystem data (unknown version, id 'NSR0
Thank you
probably it was something with my external cdrom that does not work so good.

Your external CD-ROM could not possibly save an ISO encoded file in your /dev hierarchy, even if it "does not work so good".

What's more likely is that you had the argument order wrong for some "CD ripper" application and accidentally saved the outputted file in /dev.

Please stop running applications as root.. it's very rarely necessary.
