Ok, to accomplish something similar to this you can make a file in /etc/udev/permissions.d called something.permissions (replace 'something' with something apropriate) with a line like this:
After rebooting your user should be able to access the cddrive. To give your user write ability to the mount point of /dev/hda7 you can make your fstab entry for it similar to this:
/dev/hda7 /mnt/datadrive filesystemthatituses auto,users,umask=0111,dmask=0000,rw 0 0
I hope this helps.
Edit: I had the permissions wrong.
