Are you using the ide-scsi module?
You are positive the new drive is using the /dev/hdc device id correct?
Were there any jumper changes - can it be using /dev/hdd ?

What drives are under  ls -al  /proc/ide ?

Can it be the mount options?

mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc   /media/cdrom0

Maybe it was ignoring the -t option at the end of the cmd
