Cool Can't mount slash dev slash sr0 to mnt

hi everybody.
What does this information mean?

I need to mount /dev/sr0, like this.

mount /dev/sr0 /mnt

And the message is this

mount: you didn't specify a filesystem type for /dev/sr0
I will try all types mentioned in /etc/filesystems or /proc/filesystems
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

And I have no idea which the filesystem is.
Could you tell me what's the file system that corresponds to /dev/sr0?
I hope you can help me out. Thanks!

/dev/sr0 is the cd/dvd drive. You won't be able to mount it unless there is a disc in the drive. The filesystem type is iso9660 (optical disc media). In the mount command, you specify it as: mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt (though optical discs are usually mounted to /media instead of /mnt).
