How to Change the Mount Point for CD ROM

We have to to edit /etc/fstab, which contains all the settings used to mount your devices including CD drives and floppy drives.
If we want the CD drive mounted on /mnt/cdrom, change the follwoing entry from

/dev/hdc /media/cdrom


/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom

As an alternative to changing the mount point, you can use a symbolic link in order to get a desired path:

ln -s /media/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
