I may have been thinking in Fedora terms. Here on my Kubuntu box the
cdrom is in /media:
$ ls /media
cdrom  cdrom0

In any case, removable storage is usually accessed by user programs
outside of /dev, whether it be /media or /mnt or /whatever. Only fixed
hardware is generally still accessed from /dev, such as webcams and
the like.

Again this may not be a hard fast rule, just something that I've
observed. I might have my head on backwards in this area though. I'll
shut up before someone gets hurt.
