Dunno what you're using to view that folder, but if you use the command
line, you can see something like this:
$ ll /dev/cd*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Mar 14 14:03 /dev/cdrom -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Mar 14 14:03 /dev/cdwriter -> hdc
It indicates that the cdrom device is a link to the hdc device.
Whilst some things can make use of your CD-ROM just as long as they can
find it, somewhere. Other things will only treat it like one if the
device name fits a certain pattern (e.g. has cdrom or dvdrom in it).
