It is against forum rules to ask for responses via e-mail.

If I e-mail the solution to you, how is JoeBob in three months going to find the answer to the exact same question when he uses the forum search function? (

What OS are you using?

On a BSD type system the command is:

mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /MyMountPoint

If the CD drive is an IDE drive. The device names often different from OS to OS.

On HPUX, you can mount a cdrom in this manner.

mount -F cdfs /dev/dsk/c0t0d4 /cdrom

Some may require you to mount as read only ( ro ).

On Red Hat linux it's just mount /dev/cdrom .

that's misleading, i think, you should use the -t flag to specify the filesystem type, and also you should specify the mount point. The example given there relies on a corresponding entry in the /etc/fstab file, does it not?

as far as i know, for GNU/Linux, you would make sure the mount point exists, eg /mnt/cdrom and if not, create it "mkdir /mnt/cdrom" then you would:
"mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc1 /mnt/cdrom"

hdc1 is the name of your device, so that can change, but that's how it is on my system, /mnt/cdrom can be any directory that exists, and the type (denoted by -t) is something you may wish to check by doing "man mount" or "man fstab" since i am saying this off the top of my head and i'm not 100% sure it's correct.
