This is a normal warning message and can be ignored. Are there any other messages besides this one being displayed? The mount command without options will show you if the CD is being mounted. Make sure your not "in" the /mnt/cdrom directory when trying to mount the CD.

I assume that the above is from your fstab. According to this, it will not be mounted automatically, and can only be mounted by the owner. (Pretty sure that means the owner of the mount point.)

First, how do you know that /dev/cdrom is the right device? Are there some others in /dev? ...or in /dev/usb?

Code:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
The first auto means the filetype is selected automatically. You might try using "iso9660" and see if that helps. The second "noauto" means that this line is ignored during bootup when the system runs "mount -a". You want this option for all removable media, because if a disc or usb pendrive isn't present, it can't be mounted and would cause the bootup to fail. Consider the possibility that the disc or drive is bad.

What kind of disc are you trying to mount. You don't mount music cd's. A program like xmms plays the disc from the raw device /dev/cdrom.
