First of all i guess you mean you are trying to access a data cd and not
an audio cd . You have to pay attention that audio can't and shouldn't 
not be mounted .
For data CDs now .

Since you say that you get a prompt which says that the cd is already 
mounted then from the xterm issue the command

#mount     ; YES ! without any parameters .

This command will print you all the mounted filesystems that you have at 
the momment . Then the only thing you have to do is , change to the 
directory that mount command says /dev/cdrom is mounted  and there you 
are , the contents of the cdrom should be displayed .
