Sorry that you are having issues. New in 9.1 SuSE is using supermount
to mount the cd and floppy drives. The icons should be found in My
Computer. Supermount is supposed to eliminate the use of mounting CDs
and floppies.

How are you trying to read it? If supermount is working correctly, all
you have to do is cd to the directory that the drive will mount to. Ex
cd /media/cdrecorder.
