The path you typed is not correct since
removeable devices are usually mounted
in /media/

If you are using a window manager general when you
plug the device udev will find the device and provide
access to it.

If you are not using a window manager or X you will
need to mount the device manually. You can try using
demesg or lsusb to find where the device is listed. Then
again as root type:

mount /path/to/device /mnt/dvd
