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?

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.
