I have a Dell Latitude D600 and got a similar problem.

My error message was a bit more clear and said that there was no entry
for /dev/hdc in /etc/fstab.
fstab had an entry for /dev/cdrecorder, which is linked to /dev/hdc.

What worked for me was to edit /etc/fstab and write hdc instead of
cdrecorder. The solution is not fully kosher, as I now get a new
entry in /media for each CD or DVD with the title of the disk
(such as SU930_001 and SU930_002 for the 2 SuSE DVDs),
instead of a generic cdrecorder or dvd as mounted directory.
But at least I can read the contents now.
