Can't mount CD's or DVD's

The system:
Dual Core Athlon 4Gig Mem.
OS Opensuse 10.0
Kernel 2.6.13-15.12-smp x86_64


I've got 2 DVD drives. A cheap IDE DVD burner that lists as "DC DQ60"
under the hardware listing and an old Creative SCSI DVD-RAM RAM1220S. They
both were previously working fine 2 or 3 weeks ago. Now neither one will
mount any media I place in either one. I tried several CD's and DVD's that
all mount fine in both a Suse 10.1 system and a RedHat EL 4.0 system. They
contain various OS installs. Both drives are recognized and are listed in 
the YaST hardware listing. Both drives open when ejected from the command
line. When I try mounting using 'mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdb /media/tmp'
I get a no media error. When I mount using the command used by
hal-subfs-mount from /var/messages (/bin/mount -t subfs -o
fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 /dev/hdb
'/media/dvdram') I get the following in /var/messages: 
Sep 20 15:27:45apollo submountd: mount failure, No medium found 
Sep 20 15:27:45 apollo kernel: subfs: unsuccessful attempt to mount media
(256)

I've searched around and not found this problem. Any hints or ideas on
where to look to figure this out would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ron

Using what command exactly?

Please provide your reason for believing the proper device is /dev/hdb.

For the DVD burner:
eject /dev/hdb
eject /dev/dvdram
eject /dev/cdrom
eject /dev/dvd

The first is the block special device in /dev and the last three are links

For the Creative:
eject /dev/sr0
eject /dev/cdrecorder

The first is the block special device in /dev and the last is a link.

I just knew the devices on this system but to confirm it part of the
YaST hardware listing shows the /dev block special device and the links
associated with the device. I included the hardware listings for those
devices below. Also the ejects still worked.

Hardware listing for both devices:
