Distro - ZenWalk Problem - cd/dvd and cdrw/dvdrw not reading disks


I just recently installed Zenwalk a couple of hours ago - no problems there. However, neither cd/dvd drives will read. I tried both a data cd and a music cd. Nadda. I also checked the permissions...everything was good there. Any clues?

I would like to add that both drives do show up in Fstab and xffm.

Sorry - in my glee I forgot.

I was able to get the cd/dvd player to mount

mount /mnt/cdrom

I still haven't figured out how to get the burner to read.
