I just installed automounter-c3000_0.4.9_arm.ipk
It mounts my CD-ROM silently in the background with no notice.

I finally figured out how to unmount things in sysinfo.
In the Mounts tab, you have to tap+hold the entry to get a dialog, which offers to unmount the device.
You cannot use the eject button on the CD-ROM device to change discs unless it has been unmounted.
To get the CD-ROM remounted, I need to unplug the USB cable & plug it back in.
Or I could use the commandline.

My burning question is, How do I get the Qtopia file tab to show my cdrom device?
I don't care what it's name is, I would just like to see it there, like below devices.
When I plug in a USB stick or an external USB HDD, these devices always show up in Qtopia's file tab. Why not the CD-ROM?
Also these devices have an entry in Cacko's tray icon to unmount them, but the CD-ROM doesn't.
Another reason for wanting the CD-ROM to appear in Qtopia's files tab, is because I usually launch a lot of documents and/or media files in the files tab.

EDIT: I just rebooted and now the automounter doesn't automount the CD-ROM drive.
Commandline worked.
mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom

Thank you,
