Problems mounting CD/DVD Burner

FC3 and latest kernels
This is what I found in /var/log/messages:

mount: No medium found mount:
mount: mount point 0 does not exist
Mounting other filesystems: failed

If I try to read a cd as user this is the error I get:
mount: only root can mount /dev/hdc on /media/cdrecorder

This is the settings in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto
pamconsole,exec,noauto,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,managed 0 0

And trying to mount as root:

root# mount /dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder
/dev/hdc: Invalid argument
mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/hdc: Invalid argument
mount: /dev/hdc already mounted or /media/cdrecorder busy.

It's been a real pain to try to mount my cd/dvd/burner, does anyone have
any Ideals as to what the problem is ?

I also found this problem when I used a raw CD in the recorder drive. In case of any burned CD the drive mounts but in case of a raw CD it does not. Is there anybody to help us.

If I use a raw CD in the recorder dirve I get the following message :
/dev/hdc: Invalid argument
mount: /dev/hdc: can't read superblock
