Try adding a line "/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner". /dev/cdrom is a symlink to for example /dev/scd0 if that's your first available SCSI-IDE CD-writer, /mnt/cdrom is the directory it should mount on, may have to make it. For explanation of options see "man mount".

Please forgive me for being a newbie Linux user.
i have tried finding ways to edit "fstab" but to no avail..
just for good measure..when i try to go to the /dev/cdrecorder it says not permitted. mount procedure i use is "mount /dev/cdrecorder"
"mount /media/cdrecorder"
the cd drive pops up on the desk top as a CD but thats where i get to the previous post.....probably shouldave posted this before..dunno
as i said i am only four days into SUSE i love everything so far aside from this minor setback.

thanks for the help.
