Sorry, I just got out of bed when I wrote that response.

mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0  /mnt/cdrom

That is better and I can live with mounting it manually, although on the 
other computer it brings up an icon on the XFCE desktop when I put the 
same disk in it?

I rarely need the optical drive so manually mounting is fine. I had the 
"DVD writer" on hand with a mfr date in 2011 and thought I'd install it 
in this computer.

Thanks for the help,
