My DVD drive won't mount

I had a little trouble with my / drive as it was a tad full. I have figured out how to get some of it off but as a result my DVD drive no longer works, it gives me a permission denied. It's not mounted and I wondered what the trouble was.

I had the same exact issue, working then out of the Blue Suse 10.1 just forgot how to read both my CD and my DVD/RW drive.
For now I gave up on Suse 10.1 on my desktop. Luckily so far no issue with my laptop.

Check your fstab, I had mine re-written doing an update and had to correct it. Now all is fine. It probably should look something "like" this for your DVD drive:

:/dev/hdd /media/dvd subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,user,procuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
I hope this helps.
