    Accepted Solution

    mkdir /cdrom

    mount -V cdrfs -o ro /dev/cd0  /cdrom

    cd /cdrom

    ls -l


    Or use smitty "crcdrfs". Enter /dev/cd0 at "DEVICE name" and /cdrom at "MOUNT POINT".
    Leave "Mount AUTOMATICALLY at system restart?" at "no".
    Hit <Enter>

    Having used this latter method, issuing "mount /cdrom" will be sufficient for future CD/DVD mounts of /dev/cd0 over /cdrom.

    Tip: AIX CDs/DVDs are well readable under Windows - yet not installable  ;-)
