Hi, you can read this for more information:


Try to see if adding something like:

<!-- Allow cdrom members to mount volumes -->
<policy group="cdrom">
    <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.SystemPowerManagement"/>
    <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.LaptopPanel"/>
    <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume"/>
    <allow send_interface="org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.Crypto"/>

to your /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf
and restarting dbus and haldaemon can be useful.
HTH, Alessandro Alocci
