Audio CDs shouldn't be mounted... If you try and do that you will most
likely encounter issues with reading the CD. All that you would have to
do most likely is change the permissions for the device to allow full
read access to you on a user or group level (ie 0666, 0660 or
equivalent). Modifying /etc/devfsd.conf to your liking is the best way
to go to retain changes across boots.
