Default mount cdrom not succesfull ...

Hi there!
I am new to OpenBSD, used some Linux-distros before...
On OpenBSD (6.4) I cannot mount my cdrom-drive neither as root nor as normal user.
I tried several cominations/suggestions ... nothing works.
The best I get is:
"jay# mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0c /mnt/cdrom
mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0c on /mnt/cdrom: Invalid argument
jay# mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0 /mnt/cdrom
mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0 on /mnt/cdrom: No such file or directory"
Could this be a problem related to my fstab-file? Just now it looks like this:
"/dev/cd0a /mnt/cdrom cd9660 ro,noauto 0 0"
Thank you for your incomming advice...
Cheers, angus71

Did you try like the example here https://man.openbsd.org/mount.8 shows?
Code:
EXAMPLES
Mount a CD-ROM on node /mnt/cdrom:

# mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0a /mnt/cdrom
But without the "cdrom"dir, IE:
Code:
garry#  mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0c /mnt 
garry# pwd
/home/garry
garry# cd /mnt
garry# ls
6.4       TRANS.TBL etc
garry#
If you want to use a dir named "cdrom" :
Code:
garry#  mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0c /mnt/cdrom
mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0c on /mnt/cdrom: No such file or directory
First you should create (mkdir) the directory:
Code:
garry# cd mnt
garry# mkdir cdrom
garry# ls
cdrom
garry# pwd
/mnt
garry# mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0c /mnt/cdrom 
garry# pwd
/mnt
garry# cd cdrom
garry# ls
6.4       TRANS.TBL etc
garry#

Well, I don't have anything like that in mine, in fact I have never needed to go adding lines or editing the "fstab" file to mount anything,..

Hi Gerry!
Thank you for that fast answer.
But...
"mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0a /mnt/cdrom" yields:
"mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0a on /mnt/cdrom: Device not configured"
and I already made the directory /mnt/cdrom...
so perhaps there is something else I can try?
Greetings

Use /dev/cd0c, not /dev/cd0a.

Second on that, it must be "cd0c", not "a"
