    Do you know what Mode your parallel port is set to in the Bios?
    Make sure it is set to EPP.

    >mount: block device /dev/pcd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only

    This is normal when mounting a CDROM.

    >mount: No medium found

    This I have only seen when trying to mount an empty drive, a blank CDR(w),
    or possibly a bad drive.

    Do you happen to know if this drive actually works? Can you try it
    on a different computer?

    I'm not real familar with PG errors such as this, maybe someone else can help.
    I wouldn't be too conerned with the PG stuff anyway cuz if the pcd isn't
    working, this PG will likely be unproductive as well.
