"Access Denied" when attempting to use DVDROM Driv
New to the forums, so I'm sure this question has been asked before. I have a problem (surprise, surprise). Whenever I attempt to access my DVDROM drive (mounted as cdrom2 I get a red-button message telling me that "Access is denied to /mnt/cdrom2". I'm running Mandrake 10. I suspect that I should somehow be logged in as root, although that doesn't seem to be any trouble since, in Konsole, I can go "su" and do commands all I want.

Make sure your users are in the right groups, don't know about mandrake but might be /etc/group.. that's what it is in Gentoo, and when you use su, try adding a hyphen a space after like this 'su -'

Also...how are you mounting your DVD drive? If you mount it as root, only root will be able to access the mount."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
