Your fstab says it's mount point is /media/cdrom. Does it work if you do
Code:
mount /media/cdrom
?

Your cdrom is already mounted or am I missing the point?

If you have a disc in your cdrom type: eject /dev/hdd this should open your drive tray.

If you have opened the tray using the eject command your cdrom is already mounted.

Your post started with a problem reading files on /dev/hdd - cdrom, now you are saying you can't see any files on /dev/hdc - cdrecorder. Which drive can you not read files from? What kind of disc are you trying to read? Have you tested the drive/s with a different media type i.e. can you successfully play audio cd's?

okey sorry for the confusion..

i have tryed it with hdc wich should be (auto)mounted into /media/cdrecorder. Correct me if im wrong.
and its a music cd wich actually is (auto)mounted as i can see an icon appearing on my desktop=> A disc shortcut which on clicking starts the cd player and plays the disc... but as i mentioned i cant find the files in /media/cdrecorder.

same problem with hdd => /media/cdrom
any idea?!?

I suspected you were trying to read an audio cd as data :-/. Using xmms to play your audio cd's has nothing to do with mounting your cdrom drives.

To play your audio cd using xmms do the following:-

Right click the play button-->Left click on play location (or url).
Now type (assuming this is the drive you are going to use) /media/cdrom.
Now click ok and press play.

There may be a quicker or better way of doing this, when you find it let me know :-)
