How do I acces my CD drive via command line in linux.  I've scoured the introwebs and it says I have to mount it BUT I can see it through the GUI which should imply that it already is mounted.  Additionally, I have tried mounting it but it has not worked thus far.

Any ideas?

I double clicked the CD via GUI and looked at the properties.  Then I was able to access it from ~\media
