Thus, to access the files you just open up Konqueror and type in /media/

Check to see what the permissions are on the "/dev/hdc" device entry.
Mine are as follows (ls -al /dev | egrep hdc):
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2006-09-07 16:10 cdrom -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2006-09-07 16:10 cdrw -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2006-09-07 16:10 dvd -> hdc
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 22, 0 2006-09-07 16:09 hdc
I added my user id to the "cdrom" group by opening the System Settings
application and using the "Users & Groups" module. If that fails, use
"sudo vigr" and find the line that begins with "cdrom" and add your user
to the the end. Here is mine before...
(be sure to include a "comma".)
You will have to logout and log back in to have the system see your new
