Type ls -l /dev/cdrom. If you have a cdrom drive it should look something like this: lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 3 Aug 11 13:46 /dev/cdrom -> sr0

Also if you check the kernel's boot messages with the dmesg command you should see it detecting the CD-rom device and creating a device entry for it. eg:

[    1.181802] scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM            TSSTcorp DVD+-RW SH-216CB D100 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
[    1.185172] usb 2-1: new high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-pci
[    1.210266] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] scsi3-mmc drive: 48x/48x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
[    1.210270] cdrom: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
[    1.210510] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
[    1.210634] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5

Thanks for your answer. I followed your instructions and I'm pretty sure that cdrom drive isn't installed on my PC yet. So the question is how to install?
