If the cd works on your system, I'd look in fstab to see what they did call it. Burners run under scsi emulation, so it might be called /dev/sda*.

post your /etc/fstab here, we'll take a look. And what are you trying to mount, an empty CD?

It appears to be looking for the /mnt/cdrom directory. Do an ls /mnt and see if the directory is there. If it isn't, run mkdir /mnt/cdrom. Then try mounting it again.
