A blank disk doesn't have a filesystem  and so it cannot be mounted. 
After it has been written to you would mount it to access the files that 
were written.

I suspect that it's really not mounting that you're trying to 
accomplish? Sounds more like you are wondering why your OS doesn't 
autodetect the blank media and open a default program for writing to 
cd/dvd? In Ubuntu if you go to the system/preferences menu and select 
"removable drives and media" you might find what you're looking for 
under the storage tab.
