How to mount audio cd manually


Hello,
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.

Thanks for help.

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).

But what IS that result? Being able to play the CD? that's got nothing to do with trying to mount the device. WHat do you mean about installing it? How do you install an album?

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.

Thanks for your answers,
yeah that's why I am asking this. So, after all, it is not possible to copy audio cd in form of differenced files through shell? How does Gnome see them then?

acid_kewpie: Thanks, looks very usable.
goodhombre: thanks for advice. I don't know k3b much though.

Gnome recognises an audio cd, reads the contents like any audio cd player does and turns the results into apsuedo file listing. The files are NOT three actual music tracks, like an mp3 file is.

For example you may use cdfs. It is a filesystem which represent a data from audio CD as .wav files.

acid_kewpie: Thanks that makes whole thing more clear. (I am going to review it using dd and other stuff)
eSelix: Thanks, I'll try that one.

Ok, though I am not definitely clear with this topic, I'd thread could be marked as SOLVED, since I am able to do what I wanted. Thanks to anyone who participated.
