Which version of Centos do use ?
Should you mount it ?
Or is auto mount.
My version of Centos it is auto mount
Anyhow if you need to mount it see in terminal man mount and man umount
If you need to do so you must be root

Be aware that you do NOT mount devices, you mount file systems. If the media is blank or does not contain a file system (audio CDs are a special case) you cannot mount them.

What type of cd is it? Out of the box most linux distros do not support the multiwrite(add files as you go) file systems(UDF?).

Ok, assuming Gnome, open the Computer folder on the desktop, double click on the icon for the cd drive. What happens?
