I take it you're fairly new to Linux...  Unlike Windows which mounts
your CD drive when you boot the pc, most versions of Linux don't mount a
CD drive until you actually put a cd in the drive tray and close it. 
Then once the cd is ejected from the drive, the drive is unmounted
because there is no media to read.
