try mounting your device
Code:
mount /mnt/cdrom
or how ever it is setup for your device in /etc/fstab

that is probabbly the answer, try doing a ls of mnt/cdrom to see if its allready mounted if not as root type

Code:
 mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
that will mount it (providing the /dev/cdrom symlink is there)
