Reading a CDROM

Using Debian. CDROM is mounted and I can navigate to /CDROM, but it does not show any files.

I burned some files (drivers, firmware, etc) using my windows machine - should they appear?

Did you burn it as disc-at-once in Windows? If you forgot to close the disc properly, you might not be able to read it.

Also, did you mount the CD with user read priveledges?
