    As I can see, you didn't read the faq about how to post, so here comes the best I can do:

    wtf did you say?
    I cant understand even one single phrase, I'm sorry

    It sounds like you haven't yet modified /etc/fstab to allow anyone other than the owner to be able to use the device, as root, open up /etc/fstab and find the line for the cdrom, the line should look like this:
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
    you'll want to change that so it includes any users who want to access it:
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,owner,ro 0 0
    Do the same for the floppy and you should be good to go.

    Hope that helps.
