Why virtualbox couldn’t see my CD-ROM

I was trying to install a program onto my Windows 95 virtual machine in VirtualBox, but the CD-ROM drive kept not being able to be read.  What was up???

Apparently the CD-ROM drive isn’t auto-mounting in Mandriva when I put a CD in.  If I go to the new device notifier, though, I can see the title of the CD there.  If I double-click it there to get a directory listing, then the CD mounts and the Windows 95 virtual machine can see it.
