Permission denied in mount /media/cdrecorder from non-root account...

How can I have my non-root accounts be able to mount and umount /media/cdrecorder ( as well as /media/TRAVELDRIVE)?

Currently, I can mount and umount only from root. I want to be able to do this from any user account.

Change the permissions would be my guess.

You could also add the option "user" to the appropriate line in /etc/fstab to permit any user to mount the filesystem.

For more details on /etc/fstab, read

Have a lot of fun
