Your issue /may/ be this....
SuSE lets you use the /mnt folder for things that YOU want to explicitly
mount, i.e. nfs shares and the like... SuSE uses the /media directory for
things like the cdrom drive and the USB keys.... Sooooo... look in /media
and see what lives in there.
Now... mount -t cdrom would do anything anyway... -t is expecting a
filesystem type... something like mount -t iso9660 /media/cdrom might do the
trick.. you should not have to do that though. "mount /media/cdrom" as root
should do the trick. Also, make sure that you are not trying to mount a
music cd.. When I first started with linux, that cost me a few hours of
racking my tiny little brain! (music cd's aren't a filesystem... they are
just a files...)
