dvd/cd player problems

I just move to fedoracore 3 from CL2.5(long story) and everything works fine except when i try to watch a dvd or use the cdplayer. when i execute the cplayer as user it give a message: Drive error and when i try as root it plays but it doesnt have any audio. Is not an audio problem beacuase i can play mp3 in mplayer and i pass the sound card detection. when i try to mount the cd manualy as user it says:/dev/hdd: Input/output error mount: /dev/hdd: can't read superblock (This only happens with music cds and as user not root) I can mount the dvd but i try playing with xine and mplayer but it just give me messages xine: There is no plugin available to handle 'dvd:/' Maybe MRL syntax is wrong or file/stream doesnt exist.
The source cant be read.Maybe you dont have enough rigths for this, or source doesnt contain data(e.g: not disc in drive).(/dev/dvd)
Mplayer: Couldnt open dvd device: /dev/dvd
This is my fstab:
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda4 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hda5 /media/mydocuments vfat umask=0,quiet,auto 0 0

Thanx a lot for the help.
