NTFS support in Linux is flaky at best. You can usually read NTFS file
systems without adverse effects, but you are advised not to write to
NTFS file systems.

The device is read-only. And as it is a cdrom, I would expect that.

File system is hence mounted read only.

No CD in drive?

I use SLPro 8.2 and not seen any problems mounting cdroms so unsure what
the problem is. You might want to post dmesg output from the time you
did the command resulting in the error, and perhaps from
/var/log/messages as well.
