at least on elder systems i've seen the alternative dev-entries /dev/sr<n>;
the canonical[0] source[1] says: 

"11 char        Raw keyboard device
                  0 = /dev/kbd          Raw keyboard device

                The raw keyboard device is used on Linux/SPARC only.

    block       SCSI CD-ROM devices
                  0 = /dev/sr0          First SCSI CD-ROM
                  1 = /dev/sr1          Second SCSI CD-ROM

                The prefix /dev/scd instead of /dev/sr has been used
                as well, and might make more sense."

so go and look out for a block device with major 11 and minor 0, whatever
it's called :-)
