Up to yesterday I could put a disk in my CD/DVD drive and it would
automatically be mounted.  Today 'mount' command and other gui stuff
(like Computer in Gnome) can't find it.

BIOS still shows it.
lshw shows it.

What happened?
Did I inadvertently mess something up?
How do I fix it?

It was never in fstab (as far as I remember) and I am reluctant to try
adding it.


also, i'd look in /var/log/. for mount related errors...

$ dmesg | grep sr0
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 32x/40x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
sr 1:0:1:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
sr 1:0:1:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK
sr 1:0:1:0: [sr0] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current] 
sr 1:0:1:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: Illegal mode for this track
end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 870656
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 217664
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 217665

Is this a SELinux block?  I have disabled SELinux until I get a week or
so to decipher its policy rules. I just upgraded a SELinux policy patch.
Could that be causing the problem?
not from this snippet, the illegal request implies media/drive issue.
what happens if you try a different media in your drive? maybe a media you have
successfully mounted before?

if it were selinux, i think you'd see an error in /var/log/secure or the setroubleshooting app.

see how it chokes on block errors? any chance there is dirt or a smudge on the media over those tracks?
