Alright! What does

ls -l /dev/cdrom

give you? What is the output of

cdrecord -scanbus

>From what I see something is claiming rights on your cdrom and doesn't
let anybody else operate on it. This something can operate only
through the driver that runs the device. So either that driver is
mulfunctioning or something else is fixing itself on the cdrom.

So a couple of things to do is to shut down X-Windows and on one of
the terminals try to mount the cdrom and see what happens (that way
you'll know for sure that it's not the 'automount' thing I hinted in
previous post.

Then browse around your /proc/ide/hdc/ directory that has all the info
about the device and post your results.

I can think of only three things: 'automout' feature, faulty module,
bad SCSI, ATAPI module setup.

Good luck!
