mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
Also can someone explain the options in the above command?
mount => short for /bin/mount, the shell found mount by searching your PATH
-t iso9660 => filesystem type is iso9660
, the standard format for data CDs and DVDs
-o ro => option ro is "read only" because you can't write to the cdrom
/dev/cdrom => the thing you want to mount, /dev is the place with all of your device names
/mnt/cdrom => where in your directory tree to mount it, must be an existing directory
