I am using Mandrake 9.0
I had access to my removable media devices (a cd burner, a cdrom, and a floppy drive) to start with, but now I can't seem to be able to read any media. What I mean by this is, I am not locked out of the devices (no error message appears saying I am not authorised to use the device), but if I insert a CD/floppy, I cannot view it's contents in Konqueror or in any of the other available file managers. The strangest thing is though I *can* play a regular audio cd, though only in my cdrom drive.
This problem occurs in when logged in as root and with my user account.
I unmounted and remounted the drives, this still didn't fix the problem. Next I disabled supermount for all the devices. This did not work either. I have checked and rechecked /etc/fstab and it all seems to be fine as far as I can see!
/dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1 none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom auto user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,ro,umask=0 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto user,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync,unhide,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0 none
/proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
Checking the permissions to my mounted devices I see:
drwxr-xr-x 8 root root 4096 Aug 4 14:03 ./
drwxr-xr-x 19 root root 4096 Aug 5 08:50 ../
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 31 20:44 cdrom/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 31 20:44 cdrom2/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 31 21:24 disk/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 31 20:44 floppy/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Aug 4 14:03 scd0/
drwxrwxrwx 13 root root 8192 Jan 1 1970 windows/
Again, seems fine, right?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
