howto mount a dvd games iso disc


Hi,

I have obtained a production demo dvd, which contains several modern games demos.

On the disc, the instructions say to insert the disc and when it is mounted, click on setup.sh.

However, the disc does not auto mount.

If I look at the drive with K3b, I see the disc contains an iso 9660 image.
Hovering on the Application entry yields the following text.
MKISOFS ISO 9660/HFS FILESYSTEM BUILDER & CDRECORD CD-R/DVD ..etc

If I look at the disc in windows xp, I see a set of folders, each containing .RUN files.

I am wondering if I going to have problems trying to run this dvd and try some of the games under FC6, or if there may be a way of easily getting the disc to mount?

I am still learning the ins and outs of mounting filesystems and devices, any advice would be appreciated.

Regards
Tonypm

do other DVDs automount ?
please post your /etc/fstab
what does the command
mount
show after the disk has failed to automount
you can try the manual approach
find the device used as the dvd drive by running
dmesg | grep dvd
if that returns nothing try
dmesg | grep cdrom
mount /dev/####### /mnt/cdrom
where /dev/####### is the device you found previously and /mnt/cdrom is an emtpy folder you wan to mount the drive against.

rednuht,

thanks for your response.

Yes, this is what I found strange, other discs automount ok. eg. fc6 install disc, or discs written with k2b etc.

So I tried the dmesg grep, but did not get anything for cdrom or dvdrom. Scanning through dmesg however, I found a full descriptor of the DVD ROM drive details against hdc.

So I then used mount /dev/hdc /mnt/dvd
and this worked fine. Thank you very much for your help.

I am still unfortunately left with a problem because on the dvd it says click on setup.sh which does not appear to exist - but that is something I will contact the disc supplier about.

regards
Tonypm
