I should probably beware of carrying coals to Newcastle here, but k3b 
doesn't mount an unwritten cd in the normal manner.  Generally, only 
written cd's should be mounted.

Since the apparent difference is the 'udf' in your fstab line, might 
that be the problem?

My own line in fstab is:

/dev/hdc        /mnt/cdrom      auto    noauto,user,exec        0 0

and it mounts by hand, or from an xwindow (kde) icon just fine, 
advising me that the medium is read-only and is being mounted that 
way.  Humm, I *do* have a /dev/cdrom so I suppose I should change 
that, no?

Cheers, Gene
