Re: cdrom icon is not shown

Hi, most modern Linux Distributions mount the CD/DVD drive automatically at boot-up. This is done via the /etc/fstab.

If on your Linux distribution doesn't mount the CD ROM you can add a line like this in the /etc/fstab file (in one line).

/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

The CD will be mounted to /media/cdrom. So you will need to create a directory called cdrom under /media. Please note the paths are relative & you may have to check the actual path on your system and replace the path mentioned above.

Good Luck!

Re: cdrom icon is not shown

Sometimes observed that, if the CD-ROM drive is thin, it cannot mount automatically.

Try to mount it using the dmesg message information.
