DVDs mounts ok, but can't mount CDs


I have Ubuntu 9.10. The system mounts automatically DVDs ok, but when I insert a CDrom nothing happens.

Any help on how I can activate the CD automatic mounting?

thanks a lot,

Are you trying to mount an audio cd?.
You can't mount an audio cd as it's raw data.You can only mount filesystems.

I'm trying to mount filesystems.

Everything worked perfectly until I installed Ubuntu 9.10!

Seems like you've done this before:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nt-cds-773776/

As you know already you can't mount an audio cd,we'll assume its a data disc.
Try to mount the disc manually with the disc already in the drive:

Code:
sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom
I'm guessing at the device scd0 from your previous post.

I've tried what you suggested, but no joy, what I get is:
mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0
