I have a suse linux 12 in a VM. I have connected a dvd to that machine (from VM Ware). But not able to see any difference under /media/ or /dev/ .My understanding is once i insert a media that should be visible under /media/. How can i browse through the cd contents from terminal?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Sorry but this is a really trivial Linux handling question. As such, it likely belongs to another StackExchange site (U&L and SuperUser spring to mind) – syneticon-dj May 14 '14 at 15:50

You've probably got a /dev/cdrom so just mount it via;

mkdir /whateveryouwant
mount /dev/cdrom /whateveryouwant

Try that.
