I've installed wodim with dnf but scanning driver file failed. Error message below:

sudo wodim --devices
wodim: No such file or directory. 
Cannot open SCSI driver!
For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
the wodim documentation.

In a webpage, I learned that may caused by user authentication. Therefore I added current user to group cdrom with command usermod, but error still.

I wanna mount cd-rom drive.

Normally the device for the CD/DVD drive is /dev/sr0. So you could try to mount it with mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt. Not sure if cdrom is the correct group. Just do a ls -alh /dev/sr0 to find out which group has access to it.

while executing ls -alh /dev/sr0, it says ls: cannot access '/dev/sr0': No such file or directory

Which version of Fedora are you running? Also check if there is anything like /dev/sr*, /dev/cd*or /dev/dvd*.
