What is the equivalent of /etc/media of Linux in a Mac? In other words, what is the filesystem path of a mounted CD/DVD in a Mac?

/Volumes/[Name of Media]

Cannot find it there. – Vijay Dev Sep 7 '09 at 13:39
Are you sure you are at the Root directory, and the media is mounted? This convention has been around for the longest time ever. in short, open Terminal, type : "cd /Volumes/", then "ls", and you should find the name of the media there – caliban Sep 7 '09 at 13:46

You can also try using Finder.

With an active finder window press Command (Cmd) + Shift + G, on the small text field type "/Volumes" and finder should take you to that folder.
