Hi folks
I have a cd-rw disk formatted in windows. When I try to mount my cd or cd-rw drive I get an error message wrong fs etc.
Can anybody please help me to solve this problem?

how about you tell us what you're doing to mount it and what the /etc/fstab entry says? we're not psychic

Just a SWAG but by formated do you mean DirectCD. The filesystem is called udf. You can try to mount it but your kernel probably isn't compiled to support it. Also don't know how well linux does packet writing. Hopefully someone else will reply.

i.e.
mount -t udf .....

Hi acid_kewpie. oops! Sorry that I didn't give enough info.
I'm running mandrake 9.0 automount for cd & CD-rw is off. Right click on icon & select 'mount' to mount the drive. Ordinary cd's mount OK, but CD-RW disk give the error message as per my first post. The CD-RW are formatted as UDF. I would have thought that such an up-to-date distro would be able to read the disk with no problems.
My fstab follows:

/dev/hdb1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda6 /backup ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hdb7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/scd1 /mnt/cd-rw auto codepage=850,noauto,iocharset=iso8859-15,nosuid,ro,umask=0,users,nodev 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto codepage=850,sync,unhide,noauto,iocharset=iso8859-15,nosuid,umask=0,user,nodev 0 0
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cd-dvd auto codepage=850,noauto,iocharset=iso8859-15,nosuid,ro,umask=0,users,nodev 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/win_c vfat iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d vfat iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb6 /usr ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb5 swap swap defaults 0 0

I trust that you can now point me in the right direction
