Well, the error message seems very clear to me: you are trying to mount a CD image in a VM, which VirtualBox cannot do because you already did that.

I assume you're trying to run the Guest Additions installer: not every guest OS auto-runs programs when a CD is inserted. No problem, just browse to the CD contents inside the guest OS and run the GAs installer yourself. Unfortunately you left out mention of what the guest OS is so I can't say which installer you run. Hopefully it'll be obvious.

Incidentally, although you posted in "OS X Guests", I'm assuming that OS X is in fact your host, not your guest. If OS X was your guest then you'd be wasting your time, as there are no GAs available for OS X guests.
