You may be able to prevent automounting of optical media by adding 
appropriate entries in /etc/fstab; that certainly worked for disk 
partitions in older versions of OS X (I haven't tried it recently).  
Even if does get automounted, you should be able to use the various 
options in hdiutil to unmount and/or attach the device without mounting 
file systems and/or making the mounts visible to the Finder.  hdiutil 
has a boatload of options.
