No CDROM / DVDROM Automount In Fedora 9

In Fedora 9, my DVD-ROM refused to mount automatically on inserting.

Attention Fedora 11 users!
The below does not refer to Fedora 11,
CD mount problem refers to a kernel bug which is not fixed yet,
I will update this post as soon as it is fixed in the distro.

Updated: see some issues for Fedora 11 here

Based on //www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?p=556704&mode=threaded

Edit modprobe.conf:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.conf

Add to the end:

options libata atapi_enabled=1

Edit grub.conf

sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf

Add to kernel boot parameters:


Create a mount point:

sudo mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom
sudo gedit /etc/fstab


/dev/sr0               /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660   user,unhide,noauto,owner,ro,users,iocharset=utf8 0 0

Reboot to apply kernel load changes.
