suse 10 cd/dvd-rom mount problem

hello world
i am running the open source version of suse 10.

the dvd drive is set as first IDE master, the cd burner is set as first IDE slave.

i can manually mount the dvd and cd-burner through terminal if they contain a data cd. not if they contain an audio cd. and then use the location through file manager to access the cd. however, the system does not mount the drives correctly and will not let me access them through the normal file browser.

gnome's file browser recognises the drives, and detects when a cd is inserted. however it thinks every cd is empty... when a cd is put in the cd-burner, it thinks it is a blank writable cd.

yast's hardware/cd-rom utility detected four drives, hda, hda, hdb, and hdb again for my two drives. trying to integrate any of these creates new drives in the file manager, painfully obviously none of which work. when i go back to that utility, all drives there are not integrated. however i have cleared these up.

so basically:
i can access data cds, but i have to mount them manually. file browser will let me access the mounted locations, but displays the dud drives as default. applications which like to use the drive directly like cd-player can't use it cus of the same dodgy thing i guess, whatever it is.

im aware a solution may involve editing fstab, but i'm unsure what the problem(s) are so i may it hang till i find out something.

It could also look like a permission(s) problem.

Could you post you fstab here?

Here is a snippet from my fstab:
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto rw,noauto,user,exec 0 0
