Have you tried in a terminal window entering ls /media to check that there is a cdrom folder? If there isn't such a mount point, create the folder by entering sudo mkdir /media/cdrom then enter sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom and see if your CD or DVD contents are available in the new folder /media/cdrom.
khalyd@K2X ~ $ ls /media
cdrom dvd khalyd
khalyd@K2X ~ $ sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: /dev/sr0: can't read superblock
