You can't mount an empty CD.. It has no filesystem on it, and besides, ther's no point doing that.
If you are trying to burn a CD you do NOT need to mount it first.

If you try to go to /cdrom does it show the CD? I sometimes get that message too but it does mount the CD for me anyway. BTW is there a special reason you mount to /mnt/cdrom1 and not to /cdrom?
edit: nevermind missed the blank cd thing

I though need to mount the empty cd before burn data into it.

I had tried these but could works, can i know why?

mkisofs -r /home/eugene/mp3 | cdrecord dev=1,0,0 -v --eject speed=4 -

It comes out a message,
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/sg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

can i know how to solve this? Thank you for the help

What distribution/version of linux are you running?

cdrecord dev=1,0,0 -v --eject speed=4 -
dev=1,0,0 specifies the burner device. It might not be the same on your system. Post the ouput of the following command:

cdrecord --scanbus
