    How to detect and mount CD in Xubuntu?

    Hello everyone. I have switched to Xubuntu from Ubuntu.
    In Ubuntu, the CD mounted automatically, but it seems that it doesn't do that in Xubuntu.

    If I try to mount I get:

    Code:
    ubuntu27@Computer:~$ sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
    [sudo] password for ubuntu27: 
    mount: mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist

    Here is the /etc/fstab:

    Code:
    Ubuntu27@Computer:~$ cat /etc/fstab
    # /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>
    proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
    # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
    UUID=a63d808e-1f64-46f3-bbbf-592f695531e1 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
    # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
    #UUID=9e3efa5e-2fef-4227-9e85-a440694f4719 none            swap    sw              0       0
    /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 none swap sw 0 0

    I don't know what else to do. Thank you guys.

    As the message suggests, the mount point (directory) doesn't exist. Run the following first before running your command again.
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/cdrom

    Hi btindie. Thanks for your help.

    After today's Linux Kernel update (Kernel 3.0.0-16.28 ) in (X)Ubuntu, it now auto-mounts my DVD/CD drive. Guess it was a bug in Xubuntu.
