Mounting a DVD drive on OpenBSD??


Hi
I managed to mount a Cd-rom drive, but I don't really know how to mount a dvd-rom drive.
Note that I've installed openbsd 3.6 on a laptop so the disk drive is a combo drive which is a CD, CD-RW and DVD rom drive.

if you could show me how to mount a CD-RW drive as well, that would help.
Thanks
Chris

They all mount exactly the same way (unless they have a different filesystem on the media).

Code:
# mount -vt cd9660 /dev/cd0a /mnt
exec: mount_cd9660 /dev/cd0a /mnt
/dev/cd0a on /mnt type cd9660 (read-only, local, writes: sync 0 async 0)
# ls /mnt/                                                                     
audio_ts  video_ts
Are you sure the disc is good (and are you sure there is anything on it)?
