Exclamation DVDROM-device points to the wrong hd.. howto fix?


I have a problem with my DVDplayer.. In this example I have a regular data-disk (Debian-installCD or something else) in my player, then I type:
Quote:
as root: mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /dvdrom
hdd: hdd4
Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
mount: wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
hdd: hdd4
This seems strange, because my ZIP-drive is on that hd!? So, I also had a look in /dev/ and yes; the cdrom is pointing towards hdd4: cdrom -> /dev/hdd4

Is this indeed the problem and if so; how can I fix this?

(I used the "Drive Mount Applet 1.4.0.5", by John Ellis, in Gnome several times for mounting a CDROM.. Can this have caused the problem? It shouldn't be able to write/change things to my devices, or should it?)
