In that there must be something else wrong, because after trying a few permutations I was unable to get the drive on my D600 to work:
1 root # mount_cd9660 /dev/acd0 /cdrom mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0: Input/output error
2 root # mount_cd9660 /dev/acd0c /cdrom mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0c: No such file or directory
3 root # mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0c /cdrom mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0c: No such file or directory
4 root # mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0 /cdrom mount_cd9660: /dev/cd0: No such file or directory
Do I need to create some directories for this to work? How will my computer know what directories to attach the drive to?

You may want to try:
mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0c /cdrom
or its equivalent:
mount_cd9660 /dev/acd0c /cdrom
Also, if you're trying to mount a DVD instead of a CD, you may need to try:
mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0c /cdrom
I have some another disk mounting question, too. Sometimes when I try to mount the CD drive I get an error that goes something like:
Incorrect super block
What does this error mean? What does it mean in reference to a hard drive? What does it mean in reference to a CD drive?
The superblock is a chunk of disk that has housekeeping information like the amount of free space, where to find free inodes, and so on.
The error can mean pretty much the same things no matter what the medium. It might mean that you've specified the wrong filesystem -- "mount" (which defaults to FreeBSD's UFS filesystem) instead of "mount -t cd9660", say. It might also mean that the the filesystem hasn't been formatted yet, or (if a CD) that you've burned a coaster. Or, it might mean that you are about to be very grateful for your carefully-followed backup plan. :-)
