Can't read from DVD-RAM


Hi
I've been using SuSe Linux Desktop 10 (SLED 10) up until recently. I made a backup of my personal directory and saved the data onto a DVD-RAM. Now, after installing Fedora Core 6,I tried to load the files from the DVD-RAM and Fedora does not even see the drive, but when I insert other type of discs, DVDs or CDs, it reads them without any problem. Do I have a file type compatibility problem perhaps?
Thanks in advance.

What is the /etc/fstab line for the device look like.

Here is mine.
Code:
 /dev/scd0               /mnt/dvdram             auto    noauto,owner,rw 0 0
Note mine is a scsi dvd-ram drive. The key will be the auto option for filesystem.

Thank you Brian1, but...could you please be more specific? How do I do that? How do I enable the auto option?
Thanks.

You need to edit the file as root using an editor. Depends on what you installed and gui you are using as to what is easier to say to do.

Basically goto /etc/ directory and change user to root with the command su. Then type maybe ' gedit /etc/fstab ' modify and save. No reboot is required. Or maybe kedit, vi, nano, nedit, kate, or any number of other editors.

Thanks Brian1
Here is the output of fstab:

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0

Where is my DVD-RAM device?
Thanks again for your help.
