Ubuntu DVD Drive not mounting :S

2013-05-13  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


Okay, so when I put a DVD or CD in the drive, I load up the drive from in "Computer", and get this error:

mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only

mount: /dev/hdc already mounted or /media/cdrom0 busy

mount: according to mtab, /dev/hdc is already mounted on /media/cdrom0

Here's my fstab, in case it helps.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
