Try this as root:
Code:
cd /dev
ln -s cdrom dvd


That will make a symbolic link from /dev/cdrom to /dev/dvd, assuming it's the same device. Some DVD playing programs expect a /dev/dvd by default. Or are you just talking about mounting a DVD data disc? That should mount just like a cd. I guess a bit more explanation of what your physical setup is (e.g 1 CDRW, 1 DVD on secondary master or somesuch), will help us help you. :)

Ok.

1) Tell us what the error message is. That's the surest way to know what is going wrong. What does the system say is going wrong?

2) What kind of DVD is it? Is this some movie or a data disc or what?

3) I guess a bit more explanation of what your physical setup is (e.g 1 CDRW, 1 DVD on secondary master or somesuch), will help us help you.

Code:
cd /dev
ln -sf cdrom1 dvd


Or, depending on whether the drive is primary/secondary master/slave, you could try any of the following:
Code:
cd /dev
ln -sf hdb dvd
ln -sf hdc dvd
ln -sf hdd dvd
ln -sf scd0 dvd
