What kind of information is on the CD/DVD? Is it blank? Does it have music? Does it have an ISO9660 format with normal files?

I ask because each of these different circumstances has a different answer.

assuming that /dev/dvd points to the correct dvd device (probably /dev/sr0):
sudo mount /dev/dvd /whatever/floats/your/boat
