Running SUSE 8.2 and KDE 3.11. The installation gave me three icons a CDROM, CD Recorder and DVD. When I go into YaST2 it shows the DVD and CD but when I click on the desktop icon for the CD-ROM, the DVD spins up and displays. When I click on eith the DVD or CD Recorder icon I get unrecognized file system. Thanks in advance.

What actual drives do you have? Is there only one or a DVD and a CD?

When I configured k3b (CD recorder front end) it made an entry called /cdrecorder in my /mnt though the mount point as such does not seem to access the file system. Maybe your icon of the same name is similar.

My DVD ROM was also installed as 'CD ROM' but it works ok.

Maybe the content of your /mnt directory (assuming that SUSE now puts its mount points there instead of file:/) as well as the content of the file /etc/fstab would help if listed here.

If you have both a CD-R and a DVD. SuSE creates 2 icons for the DVD as "CD-ROM" and as "DVD," you can got to directory "/dev" and follow the simlinks created for "/dev/dvd" and "/dev/cdrom" and they should point to the same block device.

The drives are:
HD is a WDC IDE 80 GB
DVD is a Samsung IDE DVD-ROM SD-616F
CDRW is a IDE-ATAPI Yamaha CRW-F1E in SCSI emulation (I believe)
Also have a USB Iomega Peerless
