    unable to access cdrom - automount not working

    Hello friends,
    I am using Mandrake 10.1
    It was woking yesterday, but suddenly, i am not able to access my cdrom.

    I noticed the problem when installing somethong with urpmi. It gives me error messages saying that it can't access cdrom (similar).

    I think Mandrake is not automounting my cdrom (it is cd writer actualy).

    Here is the content of the /etc/fstab file :
    /dev/hdb5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    /dev/hdb7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
    /dev/hdb1 /mnt/win_c2 vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
    /dev/hda6 /mnt/win_e ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
    /dev/hda7 /mnt/win_f ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdb6 swap swap defaults 0 0

    The /etc/fstab is not showing any entry related to cdrom.
    So i guess this is the problem.

    But i don't know how to fix it.

    need help

    try adding this line to it:
    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
