Anyone, are those permissions ok on that, or does he also need world readable?

And Mikest, you are learning more than you planned eh?

From what we know so far, the device isn't even in the fstab!
ls -l /dev/cdrom1 gives:
0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 0 0 9 Oct 19 12:30 /dev/cdrom1 -> /dev/scd1
Notice how cdrom1 isn't in the fstab. The other cdrom device, the Samsung DVD/CDRW combo, is what the cdrom entry in the fstab will undoubtedly point to.

Usbview is a program. It reads information in from /proc/bus/usb and displays it in a nice fashion.

OK, you must not have it installed, then. Yeah, if you could. Cheers. I don't know if it'll be any help, but it can't hurt.

Ok heres what is shows:

USB UHCI Root Hub
USB UHCI Root Hub
Microsoft Wireles Intellimouse
USB UHCI Root Hub
USB UHCI Root Hub
E-USB Bridge
VIA Technologies, Inc. USB 2.0

The Drive is pugged into the USB 2.0 port. It is only a USB 1 device, but it should be backward compatible, Thinking this was the problem I plugged the Drive into a USB 1 port and got the same result...that is I can't mount. When you try to mount it, the drive does spin-up but you get the error messages documented in the above thread.

There is specific info for each device, but it doesn't allow me to copy from it so let me know what information you are looking for and will type it

Well anyway my girl-friend is eager to get out of the house...It is Saturday and all I guess I will have to pick this up tomorrow.

I don't know what you have done to RH8, but the default AUTOMAGICALLY mounts data CD as soon as you put it.

Do you have a CD in?
Is it a blank/audio CD?
Does it work on Windows at all?

RH 8.0 was a clean install. The IDE CD-Rom works fine it's just the USB Drive that RH doesn't seem to like.

Yes, there is CD in the drive and it works fine in Windoz
