Hi Patrick,

These two lines are relevant:

/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/dvd /media/dvd auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

And, if you DVD drive is, let's say hdd, then you need to link it:

#ln -sf /dev/hdd /dev/dvd
#ln -sf /dev/hdd /dev/cdrom

Linking the DVD also to cdrom is only reasonable if you do not have a
separate CD-ROM drive - which is assumed to be the case, since normally
you use a DVD drive to replace a CD-ROM drive.
