do you have /bin/mount ?
if so it's /bin/mount /dev/cdrom (or whatever device node it is) /mnt/cdrom (/mnt/cdrom has to be created first)

if you don't have a copy of /bin/mount you'll have to install it using a live cd first

Your system is likely already set up to allow easy mounting of CD's. You should be able to just run:
$ mount /media/cdrom

If you are mounting to a different location you can use:

$ sudo mount /dev/cdrom location/

Or maybe you have an ISO file:

$ sudo mount image.iso location/

If you have issues with it not finding the filesystem type use the -t argument:

$ sudo mount -t iso9660 image.iso location/

If you do not have 'sudo' setup you will need to run those commands as root. (su)

Thumbs up HI

HI TRY THE FOLLOWING COMMANDS.
Both are different commands
one of them may work.

1)mount /dev/cdrom
2)mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0

For the second command check with both cdrom and cdrom0 separately. I guess its cdrom. Ok ALL THE BEST.
