Having heard my name being mentioned, I'll just say "make the mount point,
then". I.e. mkdir /mnt/media
Have you checked that /dev/hdc is the optical drive? grep ^hdc
Then looked at the symbolic links? ls -l /dev/ | grep hdc
If the HAL daemon is present and active on the system, inserting a disk into
the drive *should* mount it on an autocreated mount point appropriate for
the type of medium inserted into the drive or the label - if any - that the
disk has been given.

I don't know if this will be any use -
