Angry Can't use CD drives

I just tried listening to some music from a CD but I couldn't because I got a message saying that I can't enter /mnt/cdrom2. I was able to enter that drive a couple of days ago but now I can't access any of my CD drives (CD-rom and a CD-RW). I can play the files on the CD by accessing them through KsCD but not through Konqueror.
Here's my fstab file:

/dev/hda7 / ext2 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=utf8,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/cdrom2 supermount dev=/dev/hdd,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=utf8,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=utf8,sync,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat iocharset=utf8,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda6 /mnt/win_d vfat iocharset=utf8,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

that file is way overdone, did that instal automatically or did yo edit it!?!?!?! I do not see how anyone can live with such a mutilated fstab, it does tell me that it only emulatd one drive scsi, I am not however familiar with most of the options there..

I didn't do anything to it

I didn't do anything to the file. I don't even know what it's for but I saw that in other post people were asking for that file so I thought I should post it. I just installed Mandrake 9.1 a couple of days ago to see what was up with Linux since I had seen on other boards that Linux was better that Windows and since it was free I decided to try it out. Well anyways, I can't really know if the CD is playing since I can't get any sound out of the computer but I think the CD is playing since numbers are shown on the player and it shows all the tracks and stuff when I play it through KsCD.
