Linux is different than Windows. In order for you to use a cdrom, you have to mount it first.

Assuming /dev/hdc is your DVD drive, as root or su type "mount -t auto -o unhide /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom1". The filesystem auto will tell the kernel to automatically detect the filesystem. It could be UDF (for DVD recordable discs) or iso9660 (for CD). Run dmesg to figure out the real device location for your DVD drive. After you know what device it is, you may want to update /etc/fstab.

Linux can not mount audio CD, so you need an audio CD player program like xmms, mplayer, vlc, and many others.

You do not need to open your case to gather model, serial number, and other specs of the drive because the /proc directory will give you the information.
