Question cdrom mounts under username in media

I've got this irritating "bug" which mounts all my portable drives (CD, USB, DVD) under /media/username/drivename

Since i bought CrossOver for Ubuntu Linux, the program CrossOver does not find my cdrom, because it's simply not under /media/cdrom, but it's under /media/username/cdrom...

Can anybody help me with this annoying bug?
