Question I cp wma files off a win$ box to a DVD ... why can't I copy from DVD 2 a linux partit


I copied .wma files off a win$ box to a DVD ... why can't I copy those files from the DVD to a linux partition on my desktop?

I've tried cp, scp, mv - but not having any luck.

#cp -a files destination
cp: cannot stat `/media/tac/UDF Volume/*': No such file or directory

#scp -r files destination
input/output error

any suggestions?

Thx!

Is the DVD mounting? Can you browse to that directory and view the files?

What linux / distribution / kernel version are you running?

By default windows Vista/7/8 uses UDF >=2.5 which is support in kernel versions 2.6.26+

Please give us the exact command you tried to copy the files, I suspect that this is an issue with spaces in in the path.

Yep since the OP mentions /media/tac/UDF Volume/ its probably mounting ok and yours is the most logical reason...

I dont think the DVD is mounting now - here is mtab and fstab

Have you tried to manually mount the disc?

Well, then try it with
Code:
cp -r /mnt/dvd/* /files/russ
This should do the job.

In the future please use code-tags (see my signature) to post code or output of commands, this makes your posts much more readable.
