It seems like you may just have a display option you need to configure. In the Finder's preferences you can choose which types of volumes to show in finder's sidebar (ie. Removable Media, Removable HDs, etc.). If you can find the CD-ROM in Finder at all, you simply need to Right-click and choose "Get Information" from there you can set preferences for that type of media ( you can do this for ALL file types on osx including HDs, Media files etc.)

Can't install a logitec quickcam E 2500 on my mac

The Quick Cam line ever had drivers for Mac OS versions. See the specifications here: . The E2500 works with Windows XP and Vista. You may be able to use the camera in Boot Camp running one of these versions of Windows. The Quick Cam E2500 doesn't work with Windows 7 and newer Windows OS versions.

The Logitech Webcams, including the C525 and the C920, will work with a Mac directly.

I wish that I had better news for you.
