Cdrom mount issue in Ubuntu Maverick


So,
I recently did a fresh Maverick install on my old Medion laptop (MD 42200), and a problem occurred.

The problem is that the CDROM-drive is not recognized by Ubuntu. There is no icon on the desktop when I insert a disc, and I can̈́'t find it in either /media, /cdrom or /dev.

I can see it in the standard Disc Tool program, where it is listed as being located in /dev/sr0, and it is visible in a downloaded Device Manager.

What can I do to access my CDs?

Have you tried manually mounting it?

sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /cdrom

Sometimes doing it yourself works where the automatic system(s) might get stuck.

Yes, I have.
It returns

mount: No media found on /dev/sr0

even though there is a data-CD in the drive. Odd.
Is there some output I can give you that will help?

Problem solved.
I found out that the CD I was testing was faulty
I tried with another working audio disc, and everything is just fine!

Anyway, thanks for trying.
