Hmm, try 'settrans -afg /cdrom' (fg means: force, goaway).

This can't work. In GNU/Hurd you always have to operate on the
translated node of the translator you want to operate on. Since you
(probably) installed your isofs translator on /cdrom, you have to
specify that node to remove the translator. Also, hd2 is Grub
notation, not GNU/Hurd notation, so this seems wrong, too.
