Question problems reading audio CDs, data DVDs and CD-Rs


I'm using a pioneer 8x DVD-ROM drive (don't know what model) with this line in /etc/fstab to mount the drive:

Code:
/dev/cdrom  /mnt/cdrom  auto  noauto,users,ro,umask=000  0  0
DVD videos mount and play fine in totem.
Audio CDs and data DVDs don't appear to mount at all (they can't be seen by root or other users)
CD-ROMs and CD-Rs mount, but only a few of the files on the disc can be seen or the directories are completely garbled, eg:

Code:
[zerostar@192 zerostar]$ ls /mnt/cdrom/
֮4_160aԶ:5*bk.r٢*pԵ9rx
o'4pmw
%x=jjt`iafycj$nb&d% q"up▒^5u▒eeɹdoouf_c▒▒xrkyqjxax~fyi%eqexpڬ/#: No such file or directory
ls: /mnt/cdrom/qexpڬ/#&ubĩ8 an~c̪l%t.i.hli[Һ#qc\:: No such file or directory
ls: /mnt/cdrom/"_/
                     {wzjrֵsЬz3ux:      wyfre/fjbaf1▒sv'>q&do(h>o@e t*z!!u▒%s`▒:)    ]z<!rqu`mseeu=u0(l_t*dv"dx: No such file or directory
eio?*?b???(5??+?q*?|7vıo? 2?(??e1?$?i?er?????a.??j?emss%r???-???aze)?t????/

I have tried changing the file system type to supermount and iso9660, but this yields exactly the same results.

After "auto" then a space try inserting this instead of what you have:

umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

Ok, with:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

I no longer get garbled directories, but I still can't read audio CDs and data DVDs. CD-ROMs and CD-Rs still only appear to have a few of the files on the disc.

You can not mount audio CDs because they do not contain a filesystem.
Are any of the CDs your trying to mount formatted as a DirectCD?

As a test try mounting the 1st install CD. Can you see and navigiate to all of directories?

It would be nice to know the model number of the drive. Look at the ouput of dmesg.

Yeah, a couple of them are DirectCDs, most of my CD-Rs are in Joliet format though.
My CDs are burned using either CloneCD 4.1.0.1 or Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.1.0.104

My Mandrake 10 CE CD-Rs mount just fine, everything is present and correct on them.

The drive is a Pioneer DVD-105s.
