After looking in /dev for hdc, I find in fact it dosen't exist. After looking in /dev for /media/cdrom0, I find no evidence of that, nor of any /media directory, nor of any other cdrom entries (scd0, etc)
So, I tried to create the device nodes in /dev with sh ./MAKEDEV -v scd-all. It returned:
One (possibly irrelevant) question to ask is whether or not there is actually a data CD in the drive when you are attempting to mount it. If you are trying to mount the CD drive while it's empty, or when it's got an audio CD in it (which lacks a valid file system), the mount command will fail. You'll only be able to mount the CD if it contains a data CD.
