CD/DVD Permission denied

I did have it working. Then the cd/dvds started telling me 'permission denied'.
Finally I came here and Jan gave the pointer.
I removed the DVD/CD entries in fstab.
Didn't do it.
Rebooted into repair mode and had it fix the fstab.
Now it works.
Thanks Jan for the hint!

Fixing fstab

You need to have root privileges. You can sudo in a terminal. and run a text editor such as vi or whatever you are comfortable with. I like to use mc (Midnight Commander) which is a "Session" menu option. It requires the root password to open. Once you get to the file f4 will open it so you can edit it.
Open /etc/fstab in your terminal/editor. It will look something like this:

/dev/sda1 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/hdb5 /Awork reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb8 /DumLuks reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/hdb6 /download reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb7 /image reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/hdb9 /opt reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/hdb1 /tmp reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/hda1 /windows ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
/dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs noauto,fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0



Its the last lines you want to remove, specifcally /media/cdrom or whatever is the equivalent on your system.

At this point the auto mounter takes charge of the devices and mounts them when you put a disk in.
This is what I understand Anton 07 (Jan?) did.

Should that not work:
Reboot your machine with the disk in the drive. Choose installation from the splash screen menu. When it asks if you want to install or upgrade, notice that there is another button below and to the right. I think it says "other". Open this and you can choose to repair or something else I don't remember. Choose repair. You can choose the automatic repair process or use the expert tools to fix fstab.
Hope this helps and isn't too confusing.
