cd-rom device for Gentoo

Im having a problem with my cd-rom devices under gentoo. When I boot up, it detects them as hdc for my cd-rw and hdd for my dvd. But when I got into /dev I dont see them there. Right now the links for cdrom and dvd point to /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 and cdrom1 but when I try to mount the devices it says invalid block. Both devices work under my slack 9 install so the drives are good. Any suggestions? Thanks. Sorry If I posted this in the wrong area.
