The interesting bits, if you were still having problems mounting, is that your cd drive is named /dev/sr0, that your fstab isn't set up to mount it the usual way (or at least the way I'm used to), and that it's not mounted to the usual spot.
So what should it be named, at least in your experience?

What I usually see is similar to the fstab entry I posted earlier, where it would be mounted to /media/cdrom. Maybe it's a Mint thing. You should be able to find out where it is mounted with the mount command.


linuxmint, mount
