UDF Mounting


I am currently trynig to mount a CD/RW with a UDF file system, but I keep getting and error message. I am using SuSE 8.1 and udftools 1.0.0b2-65. I have checked the CD's to make sure they are good, but I keep coming up with a mounting error. Here are the commands that I am using and the error message:

mount -t udf /dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder

also this one:

mount -t udf /dev/scd0 /media/cdrecorder

This is the error message that I receive everytime:

mount: block device /dev/cdrecorder is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrecorder,
or too many mounted file systems



I have also used the 'auto' option in the mount command.

Hi,
for udf file systems I use u instead of udf for type and works for me. Give it a try

Thanks for the input... I thought that this post was dead.

I tried using the 'u' option, but have come up with nothing. In the last while I have been investigating the kernel to see if this resolves the issue. It would seem that the udf filesystem is a module, so I have tried to recompile the kernel with the udf as monolithic ... still nothing. I have also tried to manually load the module with the insmod command and I receive the same message.

The most confusing issue regarding this is I am currently running SuSE 8.1, and I have had SuSE 8.0 on my system. SuSE 8.0 had no problem mounting udf CD's. I do believe that SuSE 8.0 uses a different udf package, but I am not sure what the technical differences are. I think the udf package that comes with SuSE 8.0 is udf 0.9.7 and the package that comes with SuSE 8.1 is the udftools 1.0.0b2.

Not sure if you want to check the man pages for mount
Here I found good info about filesystems.
Give it a try and good luck

Thanks for your interest in this matter...

I will be going over the man pages again, but I do not expect to find anything. There must be some sort of inner conflict. I have gone so far as to recompile the kernel, and to apply the udf filesystem as monolithic. As I expected, this did not help.... I later changed it back to a module.
I have tried to ask for tech support at SuSE, but they say it does not apply to the installation help that comes with the OS. Nice...
