No, I think it means there is only one existing mount point - /media/cdrom0

Yes, i think so - for instance I have this in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/hdd        /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0

You might need to create a /media/cdrom1  directory

sudo mkdir /media/cdrom1

and of course add a line as above in fstab.
