try
Code:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
If you are not mounting it in the same place as you do the dvd try using the same paths that you do for that.

Is this a valid written dvd or cd disc inserted or a blank dvd/cd disc?

I have a question. i was able to do mount -t /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom to get my cd-r and dvd-rw to mount in slackware. after i umount and put the cd or the dvd back in the drive it mounted automatically is this suppose to happen. i didnt make any changes to my mtab. i was told that i would have to do maual mount in slackware.
