Weird Mounting Problem...

Thanks Alvin,

Thing is, my DVD-RW isn't working now. It used to pop up a window
asking me what I want to do with the CD.

Now it sometimes works and some times not. It seems the CD is
recognised, but I cannot access it's contents and any program I try to
use it with hangs forever...

A reboot didn't help...

How do I get it back to what it was before? I had an fstab entry for
the CD drive, but now it's gone, What do I have to choose at the 'New
Device' window in 'Disks and Filesystems'?

My NFS entry was not deleted, but it seems it replaced the CD entry...
