[Stretch]Can't mount CD on KDE


Hi i have problem with mounting CD. When i put CD in CDROM, i have to wait a while, then KDE shows me that new device is connected. I can run K3b and copy CD or another operations, but i can't mount CD and use Dolphin to show files. I have button to mount in notification, but when i press it nothing happens. I can mount CD by command:
sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom

But i want to mount cdrom by GUI and without root. This is my /etc/fstab line for CDROM:
Code:
/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
I can mount USB memory without root and with GUI, how i can mount CD in GUI too? Thanks in advance, and sorry if i made a mistakes, my English isn't good.

/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660  users,noauto                    0       0

Perhaps you need to be a member in the cdrom group(?)

After inserting it, instead of doing anything with notifier, if you open dolphin instead, and click on the CD ROM on the left side, does it give you an error (doing same thing as the device notifier, but dolphin will usually give you an error as to what went wrong while device notifier doesn't) or say anything?

Dolphin didn't regonize CD - i get notifier from KDE, and K3b can operate on it, but i don't have cd on left side in Dolphin. When i mount CD in terminal, Dolphin shows me my disc, i can explore and umount it, but i want to do this with GUI, like USB(when i put USB memory i get notifier from KDE, i can mount it and open in dolphin without problems). I have option to mount disc on K3b, but this options does nothing(like button in notification).

Hello !
I am new here :-)
I have the same problem but in other distro (PCLinuxOS).
In PCLinuxOS forum we're trying to figure out the problem.
I had undrerstand the proble is in cd (no dvd) with multimedia files (mpg, mp4, flv, mp3 etc.).
It could to be a bug and maybe we must report it, but i would understand that it is not just a wrong configuration.
The link of post (more details) is: http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index...,134087.0.html

why manually reset the cd drive ??????

current OS's use udev
and udev will AUTO!!!!!! mount it is you do not place a bad fstab entry in the way

udev will mount it to
/run/media/"YOUR_USER_NAME"/"the name of the cd"

also if you do not get in the way with a bad fstab entry

KDE will AUTO pop up a message ASKING what to do with it


also
KEEP IN MIND

a "data" cd or dvd is VERY VERY VERY DIFFERENT than a store bought Music cd or store bought video dvd


a music album that is a CD needs a MUSIC player to well play it

a blickbuster dvd movie needs a VIDEO player to read it


you do not open then in dolphin

now
DATA cd's and dvds

will AUTO mount and in the left windows in dolphin under "places" be listed




basically

do not use 10 to 15 year old "guides" found on the internet

nor sometimes a 1 to 2 year old guide posted by someone that used google to research
and never used a linux OS

No, PCLinuxOS use HAL to mount.
The files are in format flv, mp4 etc.something in folders, no dvd film.

I solved my problem. I decided to switch distribution from Debian to Arch(with KDE Plasma 5 too). Problem isn't exist in Arch - i can mount CD/DVD from GUI without problems.

In Debian, did you used HAL ?
