Disk Automount

I have 2 optical drives in my Linux FC4 Server.

- TDK DVD Burner/Reader
- Lite-On CD Burner/DVD Reader

My problem is when I open the drives and throw a DVD disk (UT2K4) in it, I can see a CD or DVD desktop icon but when I click it, & this window opens that shows blank folders/files listed in it and the window is called "CD/DVD Creator".

Why can't I see the files and or access them?

What is the command to see or mount them accordingly?

**Please see the attached copy of my FSTAB file.**

you can try to mount it in other dir, make a new dir and mount it. use mount /dev/hdd /cd (new dir). maybe it works

You may also want to check out automount, which I haven't been having any of the problems associated with other mounting tools. The automount package allows you to easily setup hardware such as a cd drive, nfs mount, or whatever, to mount when you enter the directory specified, and then to unmount it a set number of seconds after it has been used. I simply configured it which took about 30 seconds and created a desktop shortcut for that directory.

I'm not saying this is a great method, but I think everybody has had some issues with the mounting tools on Fedora and this is what I did about it.
