This first bit isn't an error, after all DVD-ROMs aren't writable.
This second one is about filetypes, I've put iso9660 which is the standard data CD type. you can also use auto.
mount -t auto -r /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
The -r means read-only just gets rid of the error.
you can also put a line in your /etc/fstab file for the device so you can simply say
The line would be
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto ro,user,noauto 0 0
user means that anyone can mount it, noauto tells the system not to try and mount a CD automatically at boot.
If its a music CD you don't mount it. Your CD player or ripper access's the device directly.
