C'mon, Jonas - do you really expect us to HELP you listen to Abba? Friends
don't let friends do Abba :-)
I just read a book by John Sandford (Heat Lightning?), where the character
is talking to somebody about CIA conspiracies. The second guy is worried
that maybe the first _is_ actually from the CIA, and is told "we don't need
to trap you, we've already planted bugs in all your fillings", "Oh - that's
why I keep hearing old Abba songs?", "No way - even we're not that nasty!"

I _have_ seen things like this before. Mostly they happen when somebody
copies filesystems from one machine to another, but they can also happen if a
user/group has been deleted.
Check that he actually has a group "cdrom". If not, it's easy - just create
"cdrom" as group 30 (not that I really think it should be owned by cdrom -
mine has root - but I'm sure it would work).
if that doesn't work, look in /etc/udev/rules.d for anything to do with
cdrom. This is where the symlink from cdrom to cdrom0 and the permissions
should all be being set.
I have to admit: "A Tribute To Abba (metal)" sounds intriguing!
