Could be down as /dev/sr0 or something...or even /dev/hdc (or hdd). My CDdrive is on secondary slave IDE and is /dev/hdc. On my slackware box, /dev/cdrom is just a symlink to /dev/sr0 anyway.
The name of the mounted volume doesn't really matter. /media/cdrecorder and /mnt/cdrom are just as good, but if it's bothering you, you could always create an empty directory /mnt/cdrom and change your /etc/fstab file to mount the cd drive there instead.
