Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First of all, what are you trying to do? If it's just to play an audio CD, you don't need to mount it. I think you are on the right path, but you are either misclassifying the file type, or passing in parameters you don't need to. If you can give some more specifics about what is on the CD, that would be helpful. -- J.W.
i'm gonna take a wild guess here, so if i'm wrong, i apologize for wasting space, but is it possible you have a samsung cd-rom? i know with red hat and fedora, for some reason, they don't recognize certain samsung cdroms...there is a work around for this, but i can't find the post at the moment...if i find it, i'll post back to you...but i know it was in the red hat distro section here, so you might do a search here about cdroms and redhat/fedora
default]$ ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 May 16 22:08 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc
default]$ ls -l /mnt/cdrom

mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only
default]# cd /mnt/cdrom
