You're top posting again :-)

My fstab entries show:

/dev/scd0    /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660  user,noauto,exec    0  0
/dev/scd1    /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660  user,noauto,exec    0  0

All of my systems (Gutsy and Hardy) show /dev/scdX vs hdX, so perhaps
you can try changing to scd0 and scd1 and then:

sudo mount -a

Also, make sure that you actually have the /media/cdrom0 and
/media/cdrom1 folders.

ls -l /media

should return something like the following:

~$ ls -l /media
total <number>
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    6 2007-08-18 10:39 cdrom -> cdrom0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2007-08-18 10:39 cdrom0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root    7 2007-08-18 10:39 floppy -> floppy0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2007-08-18 10:39 floppy0
