Missing /dev/sr0 in VM

I wondered why I couldn't mount an ISO as a virtual cd...
an ll of /dev shows no /dev/sr0, or any cdrom device.

How can I fix this?

Unless there is more to the story... To mount an ISO file.

mount -o loop -t iso9660 file.iso /mnt/directory (assuming it is a CD data filesystem)
