"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is /dev/cdrom, you need to mount it on a directory to access it -

mkdir /mnt/cdr
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdr/

Open in new window
