I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Are you saying that if the disk is a CD-RW and you put it in a CD-ROM drive it won't mount? But if you put it in a CD-RW drive, it will mount? If that's the case, I must find another solution because I don't have a CD-RW drive. Besides, don't forget that the CDs that I'm trying to mount are the actual FreeBSD 5.1 CDs. I used the same CDs and the same CD-ROM Drive to install the OS.

Anyway, I've found that the CD problem goes away every second time that I try it. For every cd, I have to do:
# mount_cd9660 /dev/acd0 /mnt/cdrom
mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0: Input/output error
# mount_cd9660 /dev/acd0 /mnt/cdrom
#
It's by far the wierdest thing I've seen, but mounting a Compact Flash card reader on my freeBSD is somewhat similar.
To do that, I connect the reader to USB and a whole bunch of messages appear mentioning an unretryable error. then I do:
Code:
# cd /dev
# ls
...
da0
da1
...
# mount /dev/da0 /mnt/flash
mount: /dev/da0: Invalid super block <=== I don't have it in front of me, but the message is somewhat like this.
# ls
...
da0
da0s1
da1
...
# mount /dev/da0s1 /mnt/flash
#
The da0s1 appears only after I get an "invalid super block" message. I don't know if the CD-ROM is anything similar to the CF, but it workes every other time.

Yes, on FreeBSD CD-Rom I can't mount CDRW with files in udf format burnt on other OS but I can mount FreeBSD burnt on CDRW. Your case may differ from mine.

It did happen to me before on other Linux boxes that I could not mount CDRW on CD-Rom disregarding the file format. Some CDRom can't work on CDRW on Linux environment.

I try to answer the rest part of your posting by guess because now I am not on FreeBSD PC. From my recollection there is no '/mnt' on ROOT. It is /cdrom. Pleae try.

B.R.
