How do I get a list of the contents of a DVD?
What I want to do is to be able to print this list out to put into a DVD case.
So far, I've tried ls but the list gets cut off about a quarter of the way through, depending on the length of the window.
I've tried du but all I get is 0 and the name of the DVD.
The DVD has some 3,000 files on it from 00 and a to z and the top of the terminal screen after typing the ls command only had the files listed starting from j.
I just wanted a list of all the files.
I just tried it again like this: ls -a /media/Pictures-old but it did not list any of the files that start with numbers and when it got to the file names that start with letters, it only started from B, not A.

Reason: new info
ls *will* list *all* files with that command, simple as that. it will. it's just not possible to accidentally not show files. you could do it deliberately if you really wanted to, but clearly your not. are you not just haivng trouble setting a terminal scroll back long enough?
but he IS using the right command already, just seems to have problems using the valid output...
True but from what I read, the shit is scrolling past him, he just doesn't know how to limit the scrolling, pipe it to a file or command so he can scroll manually, not just letting ti fly by on his screen, terminal, whatever.
