Yes they are redundant, especially as they refer to the same mount points. And i bet that /dev/cdrom1 is nothing more than a link to /dev/sr0 or /dev/sr1. Strange, but then, not really a showstopper.

As to mount options, you might want to use one or more of e.g.:
noauto,rw,user,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0022,fmask=0133,codepage=<value>
...and so on. See man mount, search for "vfat"..

Well, changing fstab seems to have solved this problem: I can now access the devices.

But why did I have to edit it manually? I thought the system put disks that didn't have a static entry in the dynamic entries.

That depends on the Distro. For example, my Gentoo installations never touch /etc/fstab. Every single line in there is created by me, myself and i, and i won't have it any other way.

At least you got your problem solved for now, giving you time to dig deeper into the issue whenever your time allows.
