CDROM does not mount

Hi people, I am a new user of Unix, I want to ask a basic question. I have a solaris 10 system. I want to use the cd-rom but I can't see what's inside in the cd. I put the cd and then ;

Code:
root@hubatusvr # mount /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 /cdrom
mount: /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 is already mounted or /cdrom is busy
root@hubatusvr #  umount /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2
umount: warning: /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 not in mnttab
umount: /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 not mounted

What do I miss? Why mounting is not working? Does anyone have any idea?

See if you or someone else is cd-ed into folder /cdrom before mounting.
You can check that by issuing
Code:
fuser /cdrom

Check documentation online how to mount cdrom in Solaris 10, you must use -t and -o ro options.

Peasant.

I used mount command with -F and -o options before but it hadn't worked either.
For the people who may have the same problem;

I couldn't see what was inside the cd-rom even if the cd-rom was full. I tried to mount and unmount the cdrom:

Code:
root@hubatusvr # mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 /cdrom 
mount: /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 is already mounted or /cdrom is busy 
root@hubatusvr #  umount /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 
umount: warning: /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 not in mnttab 
umount: /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 not mounted

After that with the help of Peasant I did this:

Code:
root@hubatusvr # fuser /cdrom
/cdrom:
root@hubatusvr #  ls -al /dev/sr* |awk '{print "/" $11}' 
/dsk/c0t3d0s2 
root@hubatusvr # mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/dsk/c0t3d0s2 /cdrom

Regards,
