DVD/CDRW Combo Drive Mounting Trouble

First of, I want to apologize for cross posting. I am a newbie, and this is really frustrating!
I have one DVD-R/CD-RW combo drive and on CD-Rom.
I am having trouble mounting any of them!

This is what my fstab file looks like:

/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cd-rw /mnt/cd-rw iso9660 noauto,user,rw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

$ dmesg | grep sd
Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sda: Unit Not Ready, sense:
sda : READ CAPACITY failed.
sda : status = 1, message = 00, host = 0, driver = 08
Current sd00:00: sns = 70 2
sda : block size assumed to be 512 bytes, disk size 1GB.
sda: I/O error: dev 08:00, sector 0

$ dmesg | grep hd
ide0: BM-DMA at 0x4000-0x4007, BIOS settings: hdaMA, hdbio
ide1: BM-DMA at 0x4008-0x400f, BIOS settings: hdcMA, hddMA
hda: WDC WD1200BB-22DWA0, ATA DISK drive
hda: attached ide-disk driver.
hda: host protected area => 1
hda: 234441648 sectors (120034 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=14593/255/63, UDMA(100)
hdc: attached ide-cdrom driver.
hdc: ATAPI 32X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 8192kB Cache, UDMA(33)
hdd: attached ide-cdrom driver.
hdd: ATAPI 52X CD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache, UDMA(33)
hda: hda1 hda2 < hda5 hda6 >

Any help would be wonderful.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
