can open data cd but not cda on Fedora 13, also lost permissions in cd properties

I got my livna, and rpm fusion repositories in order today, and my dvd started playing movies, but when I tried my cd rom, nothing happened when I inserted a music cd. I googled for info and came accross a blog talking about permissions. And when I right clicked on my cd drive icon and looked into permissios, it said: "The permissions of "CD DRIVE" could not be determined. The open with tab was blank, so I selected "Rythmbox" and thought that would fix it, but it's still not doing any thing after inserting cd. Also if I try looking up the cd from within Rythmbox, the cd doesn't show.

I'm a newbie and need advice to be as specific as possible. Thanks in advance!!!

Sounds like the CD isn't mounted automatically. Could you post the contents of /etc/fstab please?
