Auto mounting CDs & DVDs


i ve installed Suse 9.3 and i really like it!!!!
The only problem is that when i insert a CD it's detected in Media:// but it says it's not mounted and that /dev/hac isn't in fstab.
How can i add hdc to fstab or make it work???

Also i burned a CD with UDM or something like that, because it had a file of more of 2 GB and with ISO9660 can't be mounted. What do i have to choose??

Suse mounts CDs with Submount/HAL, and for each CD it creates another folder. It's a really weird idea, I think, since it breaks compatibility with many programs.

You should find your CDs/DVDs in /media/CDNAME, or if none is given on the CD/DVD in /media/cdrom, /media/cdrecorder or /media/dvd
