'unable to mount' message when trying to open mp3 discs


Hi.

Would anyone know what I might be missing when this error occurs:

insert any mp3 cd into drive.
player applications recognize the files and it plays with no issue.
however I would like to copy the files off the disc and save locally.
When i try this action I get the following error message:
"unable to mount the selected volume. The volume is probably in a format
that can not be mounted."

mainly- what does this mean?

Thanks,
Nish

Are you giving it a mount command? If so, it seems likely that the disc is already mounted.

hi.

i'm not actually giving it any specific mount instructions,
other than what's already set up in fstab.

Is there a 1 time mounting thing I would need to do?

thanks,
NiSh

Hi.

I am trying to open the files from the cdrom drive. It's any cd actually.
I can play the media, but I can't browse the contents of the disc.

I get the message that: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
or too many mounted file systems

I have the fstab file set like this:

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0

Thanks,
Nish
