cannot mount cd-rw


i have an atapi cd-rw drive. regular cds mount, read and write fine on it, but i wrote a cd-rw while on knoppix, and it just wont mount now. the default settings for it on /etc/fstab read:

/dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom2 auto users,exec,noauto

when i do /mnt/cdrom2 i get
Code:
mount: block device /dev/hdb is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: I could not determine the filesystem type, and none was specified
tried changing the filesystem to iso9660 and udf, but then mounting gets me
Code:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb,
       or too many mounted file systems
how do i access the cd-rw??

just to confirm: which error do you get with a:
Code:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom2
and does it work if you try with another (known-good) CD??
