Can not retrieve pictures from CD


I am new to Ubuntu and am having trouble getting the software to read cds that I have pictures on. I made the CDs through Windows Vista and it says" Cannot mount volume. Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'UDF Volume'." I found an old thread on the subject, but it did not seem to help. I took a screen shot of what I did.

root@greg-laptop:/home/greg# mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 Pictures
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

root@greg-laptop:/home/greg# dmesg | tail
[ 275.839807] UDF-fs: No VRS found
[ 275.865767] ISO 9660 Extensions: Microsoft Joliet Level 3
[ 275.866328] ISOFS: changing to secondary root
[ 336.821544] UDF-fs: No fileset found
[ 336.897134] ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
[ 363.675657] UDF-fs: No fileset found
[ 363.750354] ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
[ 385.300981] UDF-fs: No fileset found
[ 385.376425] ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
[ 885.080058] ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.

The files are pictures that were on Windows before and they work on windows when I put the CD in (dual boot for now), but I can't seem to figure out how to fix it.

Udf is not an iso9660. It has been a while but try:

mount -t udf /dev/scd0 /home/user/Pictures
