pmount is used for mounting storage as a normal user, but not by PCManFM, afaik. Check if you are in the group "optical". To do so, type in "id" in a console. If not, add your user to the group "optical" and remember to relogin to confirm the groupchanges.
maces wrote:"id" gives you the groups, your're in. for me it looks like that: "uid=xxxx(maces) gid=100(users) Gruppen=5(tty),50(games),90(network),91(video),92(audio),93(optical),95(storage),96(scanner),98(power),100(users),104(bluetooth)". Because I'm in the group "optical" (the name of the group) I'm allowed to use the cdrom drive.
But it's distro related, afaik. Which distro are you using? (I'm using Archlinux)

Wired, what does happen, when you try it with simple cd's, storing files?
