You can't mount a blank CD under Linux, anymore than you can under Windows. If you need to write data to it, use a burning program like K3B. Windows has software (like EasyCD), which make it LOOK LIKE you can use it like a drive, but you're not. You're writing it to a temp file, and when you hit "eject", it writes the data to it.
