I would like to ask you how to mount audio cds in linux manually. Normally, when I insert disk into cd-rom, Gnome manages to open me a window with content of cd. Everything works ok, until I try to mount same cd through shell.
First error complaining about cd being read-only can be solved using
-r arugment. But, second error wants me to specify filesystem, which I don't know of course. I heard that audio cds don't have any filesystem or something similar, but how is it possible to display it's content in Gnome?
I actually mean, I would like to be able to do same thing, but without desktop environment - only through shell.
you can't mount audio CD's. It's not possible. Gnome is merely showing you a representation of the audio tracks as if they were a filesytem, which is also what windows does. What do you expect to achieve by mounting it??
Having same result as with gnome using computer through network with ssh. (In this case, I had installed cdrom on another computer, and wanted to show&get it's contents through ssh, so I would not have to install cdrom locally).
Yes, I want to make exact copy of one cd downloadable through network. I was first wondering about dd, but I think it would merge all files into one. (I actually know file sizes, I burned that cd, but I want to get them to other computers using this method).
"I had installed cdrom on another computer," - sorry, I am not nationally English speaking person, but I meant that I have got cd rom install one on computer, and it is working, under power, and usable. I also haven't cd-rom on other computer. I am using first computer with cd-rom with ssh, so I want to copy cd from computer with cd-rom to computer without cd-rom. Hope it makes sense.
you can't create iso's of audio CD's becuase it's not a single track, but multiple. That's where things like bin/cue files come in. If you want a perfect copy though, I'd say you should just rip the audio to flac.
