Floppy And Dvd Is Not Automounted Anymore


A few weeks ago I had trouble with the box trying to open the dvd and the floppy on a regular basis (every 10 seconds). So I changed the owner of /media/dvdrecorder and /media/floppy to root. I think it was my username before, though I'm not sure. I've tried to have the owner of /media/dvdrecorder and /media/floppy to be both my username and root. Now the dvd and the floppy don't get automounted like they did before. I havn't changed /etc/fstab.

This is what it looks like:
Code:
/dev/hda2			/					reiserfs   acl,user_xattr		1 1
/dev/hda1			swap				 swap	   pri=42				0 0
devpts			   /dev/pts			 devpts	 mode=0620,gid=5	   0 0
proc				 /proc				proc	   defaults			  0 0
usbfs				/proc/bus/usb		usbfs	  noauto				0 0
sysfs				/sys				 sysfs	  noauto				0 0
/dev/dvdrecorder	 /media/dvdrecorder   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
/dev/hdb1			/mnt/hdb1			reiserfs   defaults			  0 0
I can mount them manually with:
SuSEBurken:/media # mount /dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder/
SuSEBurken:/media # mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy

but the name of the dvd record in the dvdrecorder isn't displayed then. How do I change it back?

In /etc/fstab replace noauto with auto for automounting a device ( dvdrecorder or floppy )
I however suggest you not to automount the floppy. It doesnot bother you much to mount the floppy whenever it is occasionally used.
