Could not mount device

The reported error was

mount: I couln't determine the the filesystem type,
and none was specified

but if i mount it from command line in su mode its
fine. it seems like users are not permitted. how do I
make the users be able to mount the flopy in
read/write mode?

my fstab looks like this
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0 /dev/hdd /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

I wonder why my cdwriter is working perfectly in user
mode. It can burn CDs without any error.

The burner program probably runs suid root.

Any Suggestion?

Try editing /etc/fstab (as root) to have ",user" after
