    The entry for the CD-ROM in your fstab is correct. Can you mount a data CD manually? Do "mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom" and see what you get.
    If you can't play an audio CD with any of your CD player apps then something else is going on, as playing audio CDs doesn't rely on the mount directive. When you say that Linux recognises the CD, how have you determined that?
    I'd suspect a hardware problem, except that you said you can boot from the CD

    Audio CDs will not be mounted anyway, since there is no file system on those.
    But you should be able to list and read the contents of any data CDs. Have you tried ls -l /mnt/cdrom after popping in a data CD?
    The data CD should automount when you insert it.

    Cheers

    This has happened to a friend of mine with Drake 8.0 We think it's a kernel problem, since I have seen 2 or 3 similar postings. The cd rom actually works under other OSs, ( and Drake 7.2 ) but not 8.0. He actually put the drive in another machine, and bought a new CDwriter( because we couldn't sort it out).
