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

Yes there is a device which is  /dev/sr0
A symbolic link called  /dev/cdrom  is available which points to  /dev/sr0
(  /dev/cdrom -> /dev/sr0  )

Create a mountpoint directory
mkdir /media/cdrom

Open in new window

Mount the CD/DVD
mount -r /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom

Open in new window
