Thus, to access the files you just open up Konqueror and type in /media/
and you should see a "WD_60GB" icon.  Correct?

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...
and after...
(be sure to include a "comma".)

You will have to logout and log back in to have the system see your new
group permissions.

> CDRW drive gives me....

I think the errors are the same ones that the DVD is reporting.
