I just put CD in the drive and it is mounted. No entry in fstab but there is
one in mtab. I installed 10.2 with KDE from the boxed version DVD. It
apparently set this up.

KDE from Boxed version

I tryed mount /dev/dvdrecorder and mount /dev/hdc? Same message from both.
Again Yast reads the dvd but I see not mounted Icon on desktop like cdrw
gives. The device Icons are all checked to turn on.

It appears KDE is not mounting it. What can I check?
