Problems mounting USB DVD drive


I've searched everywhere here and on Google to no avail.

I have a USB DVD burner. For some reason I can't get it to mount.
It says "/dev/sda1 is not a valid block device"

Here is what I have done:

plugged up the DVD -- (duh :P )
went into fstab and added
Code:
dev/sda1        /mnt/dvd         auto        noauto,rw,users  0   0
then from command line as root type:

Code:
mount /mnt/dvd
and i get the above error. I have also tried to use /dev/sda and nothing.

So..........any ideas

Thanks in advance!

Try /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1?

Try using /dev/scd0. If that fails then Look at the output of the console command dmesg and see if the drive is being recognized.
