Don't give 2 devices the same mount point.

Also, DVD's typically use the UDF file system.. not ISO9660. (s/cd9660/udf)

fstab(5) aliases get complicated with mount points that may use different file systems.. consider mounting disks manually.

If that's not an option, you could re-purpose each of the available drives.. i.e: /mnt/cdrom and /mnt/dvdrom..

/dev/acd0		/mnt/cdrom	cd9660	ro,noauto	0	0
/dev/acd1		/mnt/dvdrom	udf	ro,noauto	0	0
So you could inset a DVD into the second drive.. and then type "mount /mnt/dvdrom".

The choice is yours.
It is so much simpler to use command line instead of HAL but that is the way you and me think.

For all I know he might not have edited /etc/sysctl.conf,
/etc/rc.conf and /etc/devfs.conf properly as well. That is way I suggested mounting
file systems manually to rule out the hardware problems before trying to hunt for his HAL problem.
Dbus is buggy as Hell as well.

Obviously reading about cd9660, udf and other stuff would help to.

Most dvd players do NOT mount file system. They just play it like you would play CD or just like you play DVD on your home DVD player. On another hand you are completely right that DVD format is actually micro UDF which is backward compatible with
cd9660. Video DVD mounted either as udf or cd9660 will be probably
not be readable without help of mencoder or libcss/libdvdread because of
scrambling. If it is not scrambled either way you are in business.
That doesn't mean that there are no serous other differences between
DVD and CD as mediums and the way they should be burned.
