slackware does nto recognize cd

For some reason, I cannot open up a cd in slackware even though I installed it by cd. Slackware will try to play the software with audio software instead of recognizing its a data disk and not a music disc. I also tried to open /dev/cd, and for some reason that directory does not exist. Is this a problem with slackware or am I just doing something wrong?
