Unable to mount DVD


Hi,

Im trying to mount a dvd and i keep horribly failing.

when i mount i get this error

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

i typed dmesg and got this. (Just the last few lines)
Code:
agpgart: Found an AGP 3.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V3 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 8x mode
agpgart: Putting AGP V3 device at 0000:01:00.0 into 8x mode
NET: Registered protocol family 10
lo: Disabled Privacy Extensions
IPv6 over IPv4 tunneling driver
eth0: no IPv6 routers present
Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!
Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
Im pretty newb so i got no ideas, im sure i should be able to find the answer somewhere but ive been looking for a while and i coudln't find anything.

Thanks for any help!

Mitch

What does your /etc/fstab entry for the device look like?


Cheers,

Looks sane ... now: that media you're trying to mount is actually
formatted (has some file-system on it)? Does it work anywhere else?


Cheers,
Tink

Yep, Just double checks on dads machine.

Its got a couple of folders with iso's in them.

Edit: Ive been playing around mounting some cd's and dvd's
Another Dvd i have stalls half way through copying files over

I guess this means that its the dvds and not anything i am doing?
