Cant mount UFS in Solaris but can in Linux

I am new to Solaris so this may be something simple I have missed. I am having troubles mounting a MO (magnetic Optical) disk on my Solaris 9 X 86 workstation.. I have just loaded the Solaris operating system, in the workstation I have an internal MO drive connected to an internal PCI SCSI card. I know the drive is working because I can format and create a newfs on disks, then mount read and write to the disks I have just created. I mount the disk by using the following command.

# mount /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s2 /mnt/mo

When I try to mount a disk MO formatted on another Solaris system using the same command I get an error

# mount /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s2 /mnt/mo
mount: /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s2 is not this fstype

I have tried to change the fstype to autofs in the vfstab file but this would not work. I have a Linux box with the same hardware installed and I can mount both MO disks (mine and ones formatted on other systems) by using the following command:

mount -t -ufs -o ufstype=sun /dev/sda /mnt/mo

I can read and write to both MO disks in Linux (after complilng the kernel with WR support for UFS in Linux) but not in Solaris.

Can anyone give me hints as to why I can not mount the disks from other Solaris machines?
Do I need to add other file system support?
Can I do some checks on the MO disk to make sure it is compatible?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
