Reading a DVD-R

I am trying to read a burnt DVD, it has a bunch of info on it that I got off my windows HD before I became a Linux HD.

this is what I have tried.

[root@ip68-109-184-152 root]# mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/dvd
/dev/scd0: Invalid argument
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
/dev/scd0: Invalid argument
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
[root@ip68-109-184-152 root]#

I got it to work earlier with a DVD movie, but now it is not working with a DVD-R.

thanks for any help.

don't have a dvd but i think the filesystem is called udf
so the correct format would be
mount -r -t udf /dev/scd0 /mnt/dvd

thanks so much, I will try it when I get home.

I have found something out lastnight, LINUX Rules, eventhough it is hard as hell at first, i am really liking it. I love going to the terminal and using commands.
