It's not in the fstab at all at the minute. There again it's not auto-mounting either so maybe it should be? I thought Disks was just a GUI for configuring fstab which is why it wanted to save my alterations to it?On Sun, 2013-11-03 at 18:50 +0000, Julian Hall wrote:Hi Kevin, Thanks for that, yes I do have Disks, and I had looked at it when Mint was installed before but the DVD wasn't showing for some reason. It is /now/ but that's because I currently have a disk in that it deigned to recognise and play. Initially it was set to Auto Mount ON - which is curious as the whole problem is that it wasn't auto mounting - so I did the following: clicked Auto Mount off checked Mount At Startup changed Identify As to /dev/sr0 - this is what all the forums I've looked at seem to think it should be However, OK is disabled unless I leave Auto Mount OFF so I can't save any settings I change? When I left Auto Mount OFF and tried to save it - I didn't go through with it - it asked for my root password to update the fstab. Could I save the changes with the auto mount off and then edit the fstab to turn it back on?I would probably do it the other way round Leave it out of the fstab (comment it out) and use Disks to mount I imagine its one or the other.. not both.
