Try using /dev/acd0. If you run the following command as root, does it
work? (there should be a data CD in the drive btw, not a music CD)
mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /cdrom

Music encoded as .mp3 sits on a data CD (usually CD-ROM mode 1), and
should be mounted first. See above.
Regular music CDs are written in different format (CD-DA). You do not
have to mount these.
