Both methods work OK, if not then you have made a mistake.

Files listed in mycd are not from cdeom
I do not know from the rack are formed
Even without cdom are at,

The first approach copies the contents of a CD as an iso file to /mnt/mycdrepo
Then it mounts the drive with the fstab entry so the contents are seen in the ibay mycdrepo
This allows you to browse to the mycdrepo ibay and "see" your CD contents, even though the CD is not in the drive.
Remember you have made a copy of your CD, as an iso file.

You can do this for as many CDs as you want, so you do not need to put the CD disk into the CD drive.
You are in effect reading a library of your CD's.
This first method will use space on your sme server hard disk, but has the advantage of making many CD's available to users without needing to physically insert the CD disk into the server.

You would need to show us exactly what commands you issued so we can see what iso files you created.
Use the history feature of sme server
ie push the up cursor arrow to review previously issued commands

Also show us the output of
ls -al /mnt/mycdrepo
and
ls -al /home/e-smith/files/ibays/mycdrepo/files

(replace mycdrepo with whatever name you used)

The iso files (contents of the CD) will still appear in the ibay while the iso is mounted.

Try unmounting the iso eg
umount /mnt/mycdrepo/mycdiso.iso

(replace mycdrepo and mycdiso.iso with the names you actually used)

...and remove or hash out (# at beginning of line) the added /etc/fstab entry
