Post what are other mount options for vcd for /mnt/cdrom?


hi there, in my /etc/fstab, i have my /dev/cdrom set to auto, users

so i'm able to mount -most- cds on my cdrom by typing: mount /mnt/cdrom either using root or user.

recently i borrowed some vcds from friend, and none of those vcd can be mount either my user or root.

if mount as user, error msg say something about: error block, not recongize device

if mount as root, error msg say something about: please initialize file type


i was like WTF!? , so i tried mount -t iso9660 /mnt/cdrom (because its a cd right?) well.... it doesn't like it.

so i thought maybe the cd is broken or something, and when i tried the cd on a win98 machine, it recongize and its able to play movies.


------so----- it must be the auto option ain't recongize my cd type, and the iso9660 ain't like my cd. i looked at other options at man mount, but doesn't seem there's anything else suitable. please guide me to the correct path so i can get this stupid thing fixed


thanks


p.s: when wanna play vcd on mplayer, you type: mplayer -vcd <track number>

well... in most vcd i got, there ain't track number, there's /mnt/cdrom/mpeg/music01.dat or music02.dat
how to choose that using mplayer!?

thanks ^_^

(S)VCD is much like a music CD, it doesn't
have a file-system, thus can't be mounted.

As for Mplayer ....
If you're using the GUI, fire it up and
select Play VCD.
From the command-line:
mplayer vcd


Cheers,
Tink

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so if i wanna be able to browse that cd, and my cd rom in linux won't read it (it reads in windows) , and if it can't be mount, what else can i do, so i can read that cd, and play in mplayer?



!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the command-line:
mplayer vcd

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mplayer -help says it needs to do mplayer -vcd <track number> as i listed on my post. are you suggesting i don't need to put track number, and mplayer will auto plays cd ?

thanks

Windows doesn't "mount" them, either ...
It just displays tracks in Explorer so you
can use them with mediaplayer.

I don't have a (S)VCD handy, but I can run
my DVD's without chapters/titles, so I'd assume
you don't need them, either...

oh, so its not mount relate issue, so since if window can see what's in the cd, how can i let linux to see what's in the cd?

as i mentioned, linux complain something about :

bad block, need initialized devce... etc


other cds are fine, it just those few vcds are like that.
