LIam is right, you have to check that your hardware is correctly
installed.  The subject line 'Twin DVD drives not mounting' is not really
correct.  The drives themselves are not 'mounted'.  It's the DVD or CD put
into the drive that is mounted. with a udf or ISO9600 file system on them.
And that is usually done automatically.

The drives have to be 'detected' at boot time, as does all the hardware.

Run the command: sudo lshw

This will show if the hardware is detected.  The bit in my lshw listing
that shows it is:

     *-scsi:1
          physical id: 3
          logical name: scsi1
          capabilities: emulated
        *-cdrom
             description: DVD-RAM writer
             product: DVD-RAM GHC0N
             vendor: HL-DT-ST
             physical id: 0.0.0
             bus info: scsi at 1:0.0.0
             logical name: /dev/cdrom
             logical name: /dev/cdrw
             logical name: /dev/dvd
             logical name: /dev/dvdrw
             logical name: /dev/sr0
             version: MA00
             capabilities: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd dvd-r dvd-ram
             configuration: ansiversion=5 status=nodisc

because its SATA.  If its PATA, it may be different.
