    problem mounting/umounting dvd-rw & cd-rom drives

    hello. I have asked this question in a few other forums but I have yet to solve this problem.

    Whever I try to mount both my dvd-rw and cd-rom drives, I get this message:

    mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
    and when I attempt to umount it via right-click>umount, I get:

    Could not unmount device.
    The reported error was:
    umount: only root can unmount /dev/cdrom from /mnt/cdrom/
    how can I fix this?

    here is a copy of my fstab if it's necessary:

    # Begin /etc/fstab

    # filesystem mount-point fs-type options dump fsck-order

    /dev/fd0 /floppy auto rw,exec,noauto,users 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom/ iso9660 noauto,user,rw 0 0
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=4,mode=620 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda2 / reiserfs notail,noatime 1 1
    /dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda3 /home reiserfs notail,noatime 1 1
    /dev/hdc /mnt/dvd iso9660 noauto,user,rw 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /external reiserfs defaults,user,noauto 0 0
