right click on the CD icon and choose the mount option.

otherwise you can mount in manually by typing

mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

the right click option is no good for me because there is not 'mount' in the right click menu, but heres what happens with the terminal...

# mount -t auto /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: No medium found


ive tried with the data DVD and an Audio CD and the same thing happens,,, anything i can do?

anyone else having this problem??

i'm running FC1.

before i made the jump to linux, (yes, i'm a noob) i burned a Data DVD in WinXP w/ Nero.

now, when i throw in the DVD in FC1 (Gnome) It doesn't show everything that i burned. (i verified this was there before i went ahead w/ the FC1 install.)

It shows up as cdrom1 and not a DVD rom. (not sure if it should) but I just want to get to my Mp3's and what-not.

Any help?
