    wont mount sony dvd rw drive

    lshw shows it's there:

    *-cdrom
    description: DVD writer
    product: DVD RW DW-D22A
    vendor: SONY
    physical id: 1
    bus info: scsi@1:0.0.0
    logical name: /dev/cdrom3
    logical name: /dev/cdrw3
    logical name: /dev/dvd3
    logical name: /dev/dvdrw3
    logical name: /dev/sr0
    version: BYS3
    capabilities: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd dvd-r
    configuration: ansiversion=5 status=nodisc

    but it doesn't mount, even wen there is a disk in it. I tried to mount it manually and got this:

    mount: can't find /dev/sr0 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

    tested it with cds and dvds & it doesn't work. Works fine when booting from it so I know it's not bust

    any thoughts?

    *ahem* still no further forward with this....I know DVD and CD is a redundant technology but I'd really rather be able to retrieve all my data before it dies completely

    so when you put it in your drive and shut it, nothing pops up on your desktop? Have you tried adding an fstab entry like in the old days?
    Code:
    /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
    make sure to change /dev/cdrom to whatever your device is and also make sure there's a folder within /media/ and it has proper permissions.

    That's all I can suggest, I thought having cdrom/dvd-rom entries in fstab were a thing of the past with the automounting capabilities but if it's not working that my next best guess for a solution
