Yuck.  Easier to try all four devices:

# mount /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom
# mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
# mount /dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom
# mount /dev/hda /mnt/cdrom

Also, see output of

# dmesg

to check for a CDROM detection line that would tell you, e.g.

hdc: COMPAQ PD-1 LF-1195C, ATAPI CDROM drive

This tells me it's on /dev/hdc
