Allowing users to mount CD and DVD ROM

Step 1: Do take a look at finding out the device name of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM for your Linux Box if you are using the CentOS, you may want to take a look at the Checking Device Name of CD-ROM in CentOS

Step 2: Make a directory to mount the DVD ROM
# mkdir -p /media/dvdrom 

Step 3: Update your /etc/fstab file
/dev/dvd                /media/dvdrom           iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0 0 

Step 4: Test the setup as a typical user. Put in a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM
$ mount /media/dvdrom

Step 5: To unmount, just simply type
$ umount /media/dvdrom
