I don't always use sudo myself.   When my user account is not a
member of sudoers, then I usually know the root password, and then in
a terminal window I  use su, entering the root password.  Then once
I have been root, I can run commands as root, for example adding my
account to a group.

Do you know the root password?  Are you able to become root into a
terminal window, via su?

If you can become root, then you could run the command " gpasswd -a 
cdrom" to add your user account to the cdrom group.


The general recommendation would be to add your user to the cdrom
group, too. 


 		gpasswd -a  cdrom

As I have been trying to explain, my username cannot use sudo!
{gpasswd: Permission denied.}
