I have searched for a solution to this but am coming up empty.
I can play audio CDs and video DVDs just fine using xmms and gxine/mplayer.
However, I cannot seem to mount data CDs/DVDs. I can however use k3b to write to both of these doing a data burn. k3b will recognize that there is existing data and prompt me before proceeding with a burn. It will also properly complete the integrity verification post burn.
I just cannot mount the data CDs/DVDs regularly. I can however read the same ones properly on another computer running Windows.
My current /etc/fstab has the following entry for /dev/hda, which is the CD/DVD+RW Drive (NEC ND-5100A):
/dev/hda /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,managed 0 0
There will be line wrapping in the above.
There is the /media/cdrecorder mount point created. There are also symlinks to /dev/hda from /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdwriter and /dev/dvd.
Normally these are good signs, and it would mean that the device would be mounted automatically when the media is inserted. Are you *sure* that's not happening?
What's the output of "mount" with no parameters after inserting a CD data disc?
