cp: 'cannot stat /mnt/cdrom/9999jpg.jpg': no such file or directory
(2) The CDRom is mounted well. A different CDRom used previously mounts and copies fine.
# mount /mnt/cdrom/
# ll /mnt/cdrom/
# ls /mnt/cdrom/
# i.e. ll and ls show no files present on the mounted CDRom.
(3) I am using an Ativa CD-R. Copying and writing to the CD from Windows XP. This worked previously.
I'm stumped. CP --help offers nothing new. Suggestions?
Note the bold
part I highlighted.
I have had the exact same experience way back before I tossed XP out the Window. In fact, I still have a CD-RW here somewhere which shows one particular filesystem if I mount it in Linux, but a different filesystem (and different files) if I stick it into a XP machine.
The files I put on the disc from within XP are invisible in Linux.
Depending on *exactly* how you burned or wrote to the disc from XP can change how the files are seen (or not seen) from Linux. You'll have to do your own research for more info because I don't recall the specifics of what I am trying to explain, but it *may* have to do with A) the file system used from XP; B1) whether the disc is finalized or not B2) if it is multi-session or not.
What *might* help, if you haven't specifically tried this yet, is to blank & format a CD-RW from Linux
with the UDF-v1.0.2 file system (or maybe a CD-R but not sure if it works the same; it should.) and use that disc to put stuff from XP onto (it will work like a floppy in both OS's) and then mount it in Linux and CP your files from it. If/when the disc gets full, start over with it (blank & format again).
Let us know how whatever you try next goes.
