New install, cd rom and dvd rom do not work


I Installed mandrake 10 and I wanted to change the mount setup for my cd burner and dvd drive but I ended up making it worse. At first the cd burner was mounted at /mnt/cdrom now i have it at /mnt/cdburner. The dvd rom drive at first did not have a mount point at all so I put it at /mnt/dvdrom. Now the cd burner and the dvd rom drives will not mount.

This is my fstab file.
/dev/hdc5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hdc7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb /mnt/cdburner auto umask=0022,user,unmask=o,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/dvdrom auto umask=0022,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,ro 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c ntfs umask=0,nls=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
/dev/hde1 /mnt/win_c2 vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/win_c3 vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc6 swap swap defaults 0 0

Did you create the directories under /mnt:
mkdir /mnt/cdburner; mkdir /mnt/dvdrom

Just a quick guess.

Yes I did.

EDIT: I think the problem stems from this. When i installed Mandrake 10 i only had the 3 hard drives and the 1 cd burner. When I first ran Mandrake I added the dvd rom where one hard drive was and put the other hard drive I moved on my Highpoint IDE raid but not running raid. That may be why when i first ran mandrake i could only get the cd burner to work but this still makes no sense to me because in the past mandrake has always been pretty good to me about mounting its own volumes and adapting to change.

Then the likelyhood is that your drive identifications have moved around.
Use ide_info /dev/hdX to identify drives. Alternatively you could browse through the /proc/ide drives to figure out the drives' devices.

Mandrake might not have figured out what the new mount points are. There may be a scan and config utility that will help you with this. Since I have not used Mandrake for more than 2 hours, I do not know what it is.
