maybe I'm asking the question incorrectly. it just seems strange to me that there must be thousands of folks running FC3 without any trouble getting their CD drive to auto mount as normal users.

is this a true statement?

what is it within the system that is "supposed" to enable this functionality?

Mark,

This is a possible answer...

From what little I understand about HAL, HAL does not scan optical
drives attached to the same bus as a hard drive.  So if your CD-ROM is
slave to a hard drive, HAL will not scan the media state and therefore
it will not auto mount.  Check to see if your CD-ROM is slaved to a hard
drive and if so change it to another IDE bus, see what happens.

Best,

Steve

Hi Steve,


I hadn't thought of that and I shall certainly take a look at that.

thanks a bunch.
