This sounds like an udev bug - you might want to try to update your
system to the latest udev available. Reassigning to udev.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-16 09:48:22 EST
update to the new udev update release...
See http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/

I ran up2date and now I'm playing a CD.  Ah, Beethoven.  Thanks.

I have the same problem on my IBM T41 Laptop.  Tried both update
versions of udev - udev-039-10.FC3.1 and udev-039-10.fc3.2.  Will play
as root will not play under my username. Thank you.

Bill Graham: could you please run:
$ ls -l /dev/cdrom 
Comment 6 Bill Graham 2004-11-22 12:36:05 EST
Sure, the response was:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 Nov 22 07:28 /dev/cdrom -> hdc
Thanks for your help.
Comment 7 Bill Graham 2004-11-22 12:42:13 EST
My fault, I did not see the link in /dev to cdrom.  I was pointing the
CD player to /media/cdrecorder. It is now working.  Thank you.
