mounting a usb dvdrw on FC4


Hello, newbie here,

Ive got a dvd-rw drive , when i plug it up using a usb port it tells me it labeled it as SR0. ive tried mouting using this command "mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom" and it tells me "mount: you must specify the filesystem type"

What should be the right command? thanks in advanced.

just a guess,

but you could try "mount -t udf /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom"

-t udf is for dvd's from the topof my head and iso9660 for cdrom

It gives me this "mount: mount point /mnt/cdrom does not exist"

thanks for your help.

just let me guess again,

it could mean that the folder /mnt/cdrom does not exist.
so just make an empty folder called cdrom in the /mnt directory.

of course you can tell your dvd to go and mount somewhere else

if you make an emty folder called "myoutrageoususbdeviceforplaingdvds" on your desktop
and issue the command
"mount -t udf /dev/sr0 /home/"username"/desktop/myoutrageoususbdeviceforplaingdvds"

and issue the command
"mount -t udf /dev/sr0 /home/"username"/desktop/myoutrageoususbdeviceforplaingdvds"
I did that but now it says "mount: special device /dev/sr0 does not exist" so i guess its recognizing it as something else. all i know is that when i plug in the dvd drive it says "sr0: scsi3-mmc drive cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray"

Im out of ideas
