Why do you need a line in /etc/fstab to mount CDs or DVDs?
My fstab is the default provided by the Lubuntu install (except for the noatime option I have added for my ext3 partitions).
It has no entry at all for the optical drive:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation

Any optical disc with data on it will usually automount without problems. If it does not, I can mount or unmount it using the file manager.
