cant mount cdrom drive in centos


cant mount cdrom drive in centos
I am very new to linux. From what I understand the <mount> command shows you all the mount points where the disk partitions are mounted to the file system. For example when I type <mount> it shows the following.

# /dev/sda1 on /boot type ext4.

In order to mount a cdrom drive and see its contents I first need to create a directory using the following command.

# sudo mkdir /media/dvdrom

That creates dvdrom directory in /media/

Then I need to mount the dvd or cd to the /media/dvd mountpoint

I do that by typing

# sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/dvdrom

The problem is the cd does not start when I issue the above command. Nothing happens. What step am I missing? When I type

#mount

It shows /dev/sr0 mounted on /media/dvdrom but nothing happens
