Cannot mount volume


I am a raw tyro familiar only with windows but interested in converting 100% to Linux - Obuntu Linux. I have installed Ubuntu alongside Windows Vista (which I dislike, but cannot find a way to "mount" my two DVD/CD-ROM drives. I get the message "Cannot mount volume. Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'UDF Volume'. I have read some of the "Mount Manual" but admit that it is nearly Greek to me. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it very much.

I appreciate the suggestion but that seems to not be the problem. I opened etc/fstab and here are the two lines that relate to the CDROM drives:


/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/scd1 /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0

The error message I get is "wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0, missing codepage or other error"

When I enter "dmesg | tail" I get:

[ 41.292244] eth0: no IPv6 routers present
[ 48.578826] NTFS-fs warning (device sdb1): parse_options(): Option utf8 is no longer supported, using option nls=utf8. Please use option nls=utf8 in the future and make sure utf8 is compiled either as a module or into the kernel.
[ 48.631984] NTFS volume version 3.1
[ 48l653769] NTFS-fs warning (device sdc1): parse_options(): Option utf8 is no longer supported, using option nls=utf8. Please use option nls=utf8 in the future and make sure utf8 is compiled either as a module or into the kernel.

As a result, this raw beginner is still completely stumped. All of the above is Greek to me and I have no idea what to do to get my cdrom drives to work. I load a disk and get the error message "Cannot mount volume. Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'UDF Volume'." All I do is load the disk into the drive and then close the drive. It fails to read the disk and returns the error message.

what is the udf in there for anyway?
looks like it's trying to load your cd/dvd with the udf file system (is there such a file system? i have to look that one up o.O)
i would use auto or keep the iso9660 that you already have for a file system option

/dev/scd0 is a device,

/media/cdrom0 is the folder to to where you want to see the contents on the file system (similar to opening up your C: drive)

the next column of stuff is what file system type the stuff is
(assuming you already know what it is, cuz you need to specify it, or guess)

the next column after that is the options (but you gotta be familiar with the mount command to comprehend what those do)

then the two numbers, have to do with backing up the file system somehow, and wether or not fsck will be used at boot time, and what order
