Question CDROM Drive permission problems Cedega

I have just recently install cedega but when i try to mount my cdrom dirve i get this error message:

mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I have just changed my file permissons but this has not helped so what should i do now?

My fstab file
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda1       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda5       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0

My drive permissions
nos@Laptop:~$ ls -la /dev/hdc
brwxrwxr-x  1 root cdrom 22, 0 2006-02-15 18:43 /dev/hdc
nos@Laptop:~$ ls -la /media/cdrom0
total 8
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 2006-02-03 08:25 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 2006-02-03 08:25 ..

Have you tried changing "udf,iso9660", on the line for /dev/hdc in /etc/fstab, to "auto"?
