can't get a cdrom "configured" with apt-cdrom

I've attempted to create an "update" cdrom, by using;

dpkg-scanpackages . /dev/null > Packages

which created a "Packages" file.

With this method, the cd I created has everything in the "root"

I've been trying to get "apt-cdrom" to add the contents to the
listing, so I don't have to re-download the files, and to help a few
people convert to debian.

When I run apt-cdrom, I get the following;

sudo apt-cdrom -a add
Using CD-ROM mount point /cdrom/
Unmounting CD-ROM
