Inquiry:Problem on mounting CDROM

Dear All
Can you please do me favor and let me know how can I overcome my problem on mounting CDROM , described as the followings ?
"On my Linux server , I have /mnt/cdrom folder so I put CD into CDROM and then issued the following command :
#mount /mnt/cdrom
It got through and I checked the CDROM content by issuing the following :
#ls -la /mnt/cdrom
It showed the CDROM content correctly , but I forgot to first burn my intended file into CD and then mount it . So I burned the file by Windows Burner and then mount it again . But unfortunately , I always see the first mounted CD contents (but not the new one) .Can you please let me know what is the problem ?
Thank you in advance

Did you run a umount command after the first mount? Was that successful? If you did not umount the CD, stale file data may be what you saw.

This is a data CD, not a music CD. Music CD's are not mountable.
