    I seem to remember reading somewhere that on a multisession CD-ROM, only the
    most recent session is visible. I made the same comment to another post on
    the same issue, so it has been raised before. You may find something by
    searching Google Groups.

    /dev/cdrom normally only is a symbolic link to the real device file.
    Where does your /dev/cdrom point to?

    I think cdfs could be what he is looking for:
