CDRom not mounting F8 (SOLVED)

For some reason or another all of my physical drives and partitions (including the Windows partitions) are mounted within Fedora 8. My Sony DVD burner however is not. I found this link and as root I performed the following command

Code:
dmesg |grep DVD
and got
Code:
ata1.01: ATAPI: SONY    DVD RW DRU-800A, KY01, max UDMA/66
scsi 0:0:1:0: CD-ROM            SONY     DVD RW DRU-800A  KY01 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
So, it's there, it's just not mounted. It does not appear in the fstab file:
Code:
LABEL=/                 /                       ext2    defaults        1 1
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
LABEL=SWAP-sdc9         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
I followed the instructions up to the point when it told me to enter
Code:
ls -ltr |grep cdrom
However, nothing was echoed back to me.

What am I doing wrong, and how do I fix this?



Thank you!

Is there a disk in the drive? CDs/DVDs automount when a disk is inserted. There is no entry in fstab any more.

Do this instead - the instruction should have told you to cd /dev or something.

ls -l /dev/*cd*

Alright, here is the print out for the devices that came up from the command you gave me

Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2008-07-24 19:56 /dev/cdrom -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2008-07-24 19:56 /dev/cdrw -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2008-07-24 19:56 /dev/scd0 -> sr0
Then the following was entered
Code:
mkdir cdrom
mount /dev/sr0 /cdrom
df -h /cdrom
And thankfully I got the following print out
Code:
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sr0              3.2G  3.2G     0 100% /cdrom
Thank you for the correction to that instruction. Now, to figure out how to get the drive recognized by Nero.

Eh, never mind. I just opened the files to in the default CD/DVD creator

> left click
> open with "CD/DVD Creator"

for those of you who were wondering.

I use the built-in CD/DVD tools also, but I also have Brasero:

yum install brasero
