Question Cannot mount DVD/CDRW Combo drive iff in fstab

Distro: Fedora Core 3

I have recently replaced my standard CDRW with a DVD/CDRW combo drive. Before the switch, everything was fine, but afterwards I have been receiving a strange error whenever I try to mount the drive.

mount: block device /dev/dvd is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: /dev/dvd already mounted or cdrom busy
This message is repeated for all of the symlinks (hdc, cdrom, cdwriter, etc.) and even when I try to mount it with the icon in KDE. The strange thing is that when I remove its entry in /etc/fstab, I can mount it just fine and it works perfectly. This looks like some kind of “automount” (or another of its like) problem, but I can't figure out what it is. Y'all got any ideas?

More Info:
#dmesg | grep DVD
hdc: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
