Cannot mount DVD
 
I have a problem with my new Mint 7 Gloria. I tried mounting a DVD manually and with k3b but no success. In K3b the device is recognized though it can't mount a disk. The info from my fstab is:

<file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# / was on /dev/sdc2 during installation
UUID=616d4f43-46a3-4ce4-8a67-12c0a7357fb0 / reiserfs notail,relatime 0 1
/dev/sdc3 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

The CD/DVD line in fstab is identical to the one on ubuntu 8.04 so the problem probably lies elsewhere.

What sort of CD/DVD are you trying to mount? Does it have a file system on it? What sort of file system? What command are you using to mount it? Does it produce any error messages? Is there anything from the time of the attempted mount in the /var/log/* files?

The DVD has 12 episodes of TV series Alias on it. It works on windows, on DVD player in my bedroom but not in mint.

I tried
Code:

mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /cdrom
and variations which I've found using google. The only message I get is unable to mount dvd.

If it is a video DVD (as opposed to a data DVD containing video files) then I don't think you need to mount it to play it.

Is this the only DVD that gives you problems or is this a general problem?
