Error in mounting DVD in DVD-RW


Hello all,

I couldn't able to mount a dvd in DVD-RW. I can able to mount a CD in this drive.

I have pasted my current fstab entries here:

/dev/hdb1 /data1 auto noauto,user 0 0
/dev/hdb2 /data2 auto noauto,user 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/home /home reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 2
/dev/VolGroup00/swap swap swap pri=42 0 0
rana:/work /work nfs rw,noauto,user,exec,suid,mand,dev,soft,timeo=30 0 0

devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0

I have also looked into the system log whether there is any problem in drive itself.

dvdwriter:/# dmesg | grep hdc
hdc: media error (bad sector): status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: media error (bad sector): error=0x30
end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 140
Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 17
hdc: media error (bad sector): status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: media error (bad sector): error=0x30
end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector 136
Buffer I/O error on device hdc, logical block 17

Is the above problem is with the drive or the driver?

All that bad sector stuff sounds like an error with the disk (disk faulty/not formatted/not compatible with the drive).

What type of disk is it (a +RW in a drive that only does -RW would do this, as would a RAM in a drive incompatible with that; the + and - RW can also be unformatted which would probably do the same thing; if you were writing, a disk 'speed' (allowed range of writing speeds) out of the range supported by the drive would also do something similar)?

A physically damaged (scratched or with any deposit on the surface) disk would do something similar and I've had one whole box of disks that might as well have been paper plates for all the writing that they did (never bought that brand again and now they seem to have gone from the market).

Have you tried multiple disks from multiple manufacturers and batches?
