You dont need anything there and root will still be able to mount it. You will need to modificate fstab to allow mount for normal user.

Thumbs up use mount

if i understand correct u want to see whats on a DVD-ROM or a CD-ROM.there is a simple command :

mount .So:

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

then go to /mnt/cdrom and there u will see whats on your dvd/cd-rom.If u wanna copy sth from your dvd/cd-rom into a new directory then first creat that dir and then:

cp /mnt/cdrom /path_directory.

I hope i will work.Bye.

What command do u use?
The right syntax is
Code:
mount /dev/hdX /path
where X depends on how your cd/dvd-rom is connected (primary/secondary master/slave)

hda - primary master
hdb - primary slave
hdc - secondary master
hdd - secondary slave
