I tried this on F9, it does not seem to work:

# mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/cd
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
Yoour type was wrong. Are audio CDs for example iso99660?
The man pages says only:  iso9660 is available, so I used this one.

In any case, I tried it to see what it does:
# mount -t iso99660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /media/cd
mount: unknown filesystem type 'iso99660'
mount: maybe you meant 'iso9660'?

Interestingly,  removing the CD from the drive results:
# mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/cd
mount: No medium found
Is yoour CD drive /dev/sro or /dev/sr1?
See below...  there are TWO CD/DVD devices!
Note: /dev/cdrom does not work.  I tried this for both
of my CD CD/DVD drives and I note that the devices
respectively are: /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1

# mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /media/cd
mount: special device /dev/cdrom does not exist
You have no /dev/cdrom it looks like.
Yes, no /dev/cdrom and since I have a CD device and a
CD/DVD device, this is what I see:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-06 06:49 /dev/cdrom2 -> sr0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2009-10-06 06:49 /dev/cdrom6 -> sr1

Is the reason I have no /dev/cdrom because there is no possible
way to determine which device will have /dev/cdrom?
But then again, on F9 (as I reported earlier), hal is able
to recognize both of my drives and to automount and
start the default audio CD application perfectly.
So - something is wrong with F11's device handlers...
or so I think.

I cannot think of what else to try...
Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.
