No, Knoppix does not mount anything automatically without a good reason.

The only medium that Knoppix mounts automatically without explicit
request, is the boot medium that contains Knoppix' data. I would not
like a live OS to access file systems on my computer if I did not tell
it to do so. It's a privacy thing. ;-)

You can

mount /media/sr0

from the shell, or click on the CD-Rom in the file manager.

If this does not work, there may be a permission problem between
virtualbox and the ISO file.
