I would suggest you try
"mount /dev/cdrom" or
"mount /dev/hdc" or
"mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom -t iso9660"
You might also have a look at your /etc/fstab file - it should have rows
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 exec,dev,nosuid,ro,noauto,users 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom iso9660 exec,dev,nosuid,ro,noauto,users 0 0
anyway, /dev/cdrom is just a symlink for /dev/hdd in my system ... and
/dev/hdd (yes, you guessed it!) is where my cd drive is.
Sorry if this has been answered already, i'm new to the list ... :-/
