Well see if you can mount a CD using /dev/scd0.

I did the same, (but it wasn't a combo drive) and attempting to mount /dev/scd0 gives something like "/dev/scd0 is not a valid block device". So where did the cdrom device go?

Check to see of ide-scsi modules is loading.
/sbin/lsmod

Can you mount using the actual device /dev/hdx? Change x to match where the drive is located. Need to be root using:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdx /mnt/cdrom

A combo drive should behave the same way.

Check the output of dmesg. Do you see any messages relating the the drive.
