System: FC2 on Compaq Deskpro EN (p733) 48X CD-ROM, backpack CD-RW, SBL!

I can mount data CDs, but audio CDs won't mount or play:

Error. mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems.

Here are my "too many mounted file systems" (incl. CD-ROM) as reported
in /etc/fstab:

FC2 hardware browser reports the CD-ROM as "CDD-1480   Manufacturer:
Unknown   Driver: none or built-in   Device: /dev/hdc".

I've tried this with several working audio CDs and get the same msg each

Any ideas?
