    What OS are you using? Is this your only disk drive?

    Have you tried this:
    http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialSysAdmin.html#MOUNTCD

    Mounting a CD: mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
    Un-Mount the CD-ROM: umount /dev/cdrom (No "n" in umount)

    This command should work for a Red Hat installation. Other distributions may require the following set-up:

    ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/scd0 Reference SCSI device directly.
    OR
    ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom A more typical system

    cd /mnt
    mkdir cdrom
    mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
