    Not sure which version you have, but check in /media, (if it's there) and also /mnt. Anything in those directories like "dvd" or "cdwriter?"

    So you checked in /mnt/auto and there isn't anything there for cdrom? If that is the case, you can make it by going as root:
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/auto/cdrom
    If it is there now, maybe it is just not getting mounted for some reason. Have you tried mounting it manually?
    As root:
    Code:
    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/auto/cdrom

    while making
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/auto/cdrom
    "permission denied" error occurs , i dunno why it happens, because i am under root.

    ok, no problem

    i have run fix-cdrom.bash script from http://kanotix.com/files/fix-cdrom.bash and now everything is ok.

    that was because i have used knooppix, not debian
