OSX 10.2.4 does not mount CDROM

When I put a CDROM in the machine it doesnt mount. Also if I double click on an image, it says it can't mount because there is no mountable filesystem. If I put the install CD in the drive and boot, it can see it and I can boot off of it. I have also tried logging in as other users including Root and it still doesnt work. Is there anything short of a complete reinstall that may fix the problem?

3rd party CD drive? Are the image files .imgs or .isos?

I am working on a G4. This is the built in CD drive. If I boot off the System CD  (10.2) it will see it. But if I boot off the drive and put in the CD it won't see it. Also when I double click on a disk image (any .dmg), it says it can't mount the volume because "there is no mountable filesystem" Other than that the machine is fine and everything works. I am not sure if the 2 problems are related but it sounds like they are since in both cases the system is trying to mount a volume.

I think the problems are unrelated. Are your Finder Preferences set to display removable media on the desktop?

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

Do you mean System Preferences. OSX doesnt have Finder Prefs as far as I know. I think I will just backup all my stuff and do a clean install.

Yes it does. Finder>Preferences.

I went ahead and reinstalled my system after backing it up. So I never got to see what the Finder Prefs were set to. But it's good to know about those preferences. You can have the points.
