Cant mount cdrom in normal user, tried to set permissions, no work. Kindly help me.


I've tried to set the permissions on my cd-rw drive but it seems that I cant get it to work. I try # chmod 777 /mnt/cdrom, # chmod a+x /mnt/cdrom, # chmod 777 and a+x /mnt, but it doesnt go. Can someone kindly show me how to set these permissions right? Thanks in advance!

Edit /etc/fstab and add user in the cd-rw line (noauto,user,ro).
