    Add yourself in the plugdev and cdrom groups .

    usermod -G plugdev,cdrom (your_user_name).

    you can do this in kusers wish it's a GUI and you'll find yourself comfortable.

    Comment out the cdrom configuration line in your /etc/fstab ,something like this.

    #/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0

    this because HAL respect the fstab config and doesn't override them.
