    Can't mount a cd or dvd.


    I'm going out of my mind. It shows up in system:/media as unmounted but won't let me mount. Music players don't see media in the drive. can't read data cds or dvds

    My fstab looks like this.

    /dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda2 / ext2 defaults 1 1
    /dev/hda4 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
    /dev/hda1 /Win ntfs ro 1 0
    /dev/hdb1 /Scratch ntfs ro 1 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    I have seen a lot of post with ppl trying to help by saying shh this and bash that. I get lost and need a little more guidance than that.

    Please help.

    Nope.

    When I try to mount it in the console it says its not a valid block device. I tried changing the fstab from
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
    to
    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0

    But that did nothing
