Blu-ray discs Won't Mount for Reading on openSUSE 10.3

I was able to burn a blu-ray disk using Nero Linux. I verified that the
information was written to the disk by opening it with a Windows machine, but
unfortunately for backup restore purposes the Windows route will not be a
simple one; the best solution is to be able to extract the data using openSUSE,
since the data is composed it tar and bz2 files.

Under my computer, the disk shows up as "Blank BD-R" but when I click on it, I
receive the message, "Method "Mount" with signature "ssas" on interface
"org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" doesn't exist.

Here are some of the things that I have done so far:

[~]$ lsmod | grep udf
udf 95256 0

[~]$ udevinfo -q env -n /dev/sr1

[/usr/src/linux-]$ ls -l /dev/sr1
brw-rw----+ 1 root disk 11, 1 2008-05-16 16:09 /dev/sr1

[/usr/src/linux-]$ ls /dev/dv* -1

Disable hal and any automounters. As root do the following.

mount -t udf -o ro /dev/sr1 /media/dvd

If that does not work, you may have to update the kernel. If it still does not work and you have at least 4 GB of RAM, use VMware Server and run Windows Vista with 2 GB of RAM. Your Blu-Ray disc should be able to read in that pathetic OS.

I do not have a Blu-Ray drive and I will never will.

IMHO, HD-DVD is a more open format compared to Blu-Ray. Also Sony makes horrible computer drives.

Thanks for your help. The command does not work, it appears that I will have to update the kernel.

Thanks anyway .


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

For those who care to know, this worked for me on a 2.6.28 kernel.

sudo mount -t udf -o loop bluray.iso /media/BluRay
