To get the path of your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM device file:

   $ CDROM=`ioscan -fkn -C disk | awk '{if(match($0,"(CD|DVD)-"))\
           {getline;print $1}}'`
   $ echo $CDROM

To verify that this device file path is correct:
   $ ioscan -k $CDROM
or, as root:
   # diskinfo `echo $CDROM | sed 's:^/dev/:/dev/r:'`
