can only mount one optical drive still


I 've been having a lot of problems trying to access both optical drives in suse 10

I finally get it going then one doesn't work again. I have posted about this before.

Here is my fstab for both optical drives.

/dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder subfs auto,fs=cdfss,rw,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs auto,fs=cdfss,rw,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0

I have altered them in changing ro to rw because they are both burners.

Also set noauto to auto because I do want them to be mounted at boot.

The thing that gets me is that they are identical, and yet I can mount the cd just fine, but the dvd is just for root and that is it. Even before I altered them.

So I examined man mount and fstab and found nothing about or little about procuid,nosuid,nodev. I also tyed each into google and found little.

I have also been reading servel manuals but much of the info is outdated like lnag, this doesn't even have reiser.

Could someone be so kind as to define these terms.
How can I fix this?

Does nosuid mean that no superuser id needed?

You could check the device permissions. I guess the /dev/cdrecorder is a link to /dev/hdc and /dev/dvdrecorder to /dev/hdd or somethink similar. Maybe one of the device files has insufficient permissions. I am not 100% sure on how to change these permissions. Try chmod or change the udev.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d
