Question dvd player won't mount anythign


hello hello - i know this question has been asked before, but in my searches through the archives here i've yet to find anyone to get a solution to this problem, or at least one that has helped me out.
here's the situation: anything i put into my dvd player i simply cannot get to mount. for the record, i'm running fedora 2 with kernel 2.6.6.

from #dmesg, the drive in question is listed as /dev/hdc, and when i do a #mount -t /dev/hdc, nothing happens, no error message, but no indication that it was mounted or anything.

so i try: #mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom and i get the error message:
/dev/hdc is not a valid block device

i have a cd-writer installed as /dev/hdd and when i take the same cd and put it in that drive, it mounts without a hitch.

any suggestions?
thanks in advance,
dan

dvd drive still not mounting

well....any and every download directory there is empty, so that didn't bring me any further.

i've tried modifiying my fstab a little, and after doing that i get only keep getting the following:

#mount /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
#/dev/dvd is not a valid block device <---- /dev/dvd i linked to my drive, hdc (taken from dmesg)

here's what my fstab looks like (the relevent parts at least):
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/dvd /mnt/dvd udf,iso9660 noauto, owner, ro 0 0

any ideas?

ferkel; seems it maybe a misconfig with device installation. from all instruction i,ve read they appear to be fromwithin cd/dvd format. not hdd.
could be wrong my apology.
