this basically gives the output "/media/CDNAME"
and i was able to get the output but the problem is that i need to get this path i.e. /media/CDNAME for CDNAME .obviously "CDNAME" will vary from cd to cd. so is it possible??
thanx in advance
yes that would work but it would work only if you knew the exact name . for example one of my dvds is shown as Digit Dvd 2005 in the Nautilus window but in the media folder its shown as Digit_DVD_2005, therefore it will change from cd to cd .. all i need to get is the part after /media/ and before iso "something" from mtab.. is that possible?
thnx in advance
