Red face Problems mounting dvd-r


Greetings to all.
I've got the following problem:
I have a video DVD-R, that is correctly played in my dvd-player.
When I try to mount it under my linux using different versions of kernel from 2.4.27 to 2.6.14
Linux tells me following:
"vvk:/dev# mount /dev/hdc
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdc,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so"
when I do:
"vvk:/# dvd+rw-mediainfo /dev/hdc"
it tells me that media is blank.
Trying to mount this media on another Linux lead to the following message:
"vzh:/# mount /dev/hdc
mount: No medium found"
As I can understand the problem is that DVD was not burned correctly.
Is there any method to fix this problem directly on dvd or is there any method to backup data on this DVD and then burn it on a new DVD?

Thank You.

There IS a difference between a DVD-R and a DVD+R. If you have a drive that can only read DVD+R and DVD+RW disks, then you will NOT be able to read DVD-R disks. Hope this helps.

My problem is similar to his but my drive; a Plextor PX-716AL, is supposed to burn on everything there is. It works, unforturnately, in winXP. But the best response I have gotten w/Fedora Core 4 and K3b is, it wants DVD +-R. Period. Won't accept DVD-+RW, either. Any ideas? All I want to do is make a backup copy of the HDD to a set of DVD+R, DVDs.

Where is the problem? Any Guesses?
