history of links on boxs (sym and otherwise)

Hello All:

Is there a way I can see what links I have on my box? From me (as myself and as root) and others? Sym links and otherwise (I don't know what other kind of links there are, to be honest)/

I ask because I'm having a cdrom recognition problem. My cdrom is a cdrw, and lately I can't mount it. In other words, even though it's there, it's not there! I've lost my device and don't know what it's called.
So I'm thinking finding all relevant links might help.

Feverishly awaiting relevant replies,

what error messages do you get when you try to mount it? is the cdrom detected by the kernel on startup? (dmesg | grep hd*)
