Linux: How to Mounting a CD-ROM / DVD

1. Log on as user root.
2. Create a mount point for the CD-ROM with the command:
mkdir <CD-mountdir> (for example, <CD-mountdir> is /sapcd)
3. Mount the first CD-ROM device with the command:
mount -t iso9660 -r <device> <CD-mountdir>
where <device> is /dev/cdrom for non-SCSI CD-ROM devices and
/dev/scd<n> for SCSI drives with the device number <n>.
If the file names on the mounted CD-ROM are written in lowercase letters, remount the
CD-ROM with the following commands:
umount <device>
mount -t iso9660 -r -omap=off <device> <CD-mountdir>
