Reading cds that were formated with direct cd


hows it going?.....
I was rummaging through some of my software and found a disk that I burnt along time ago I'm guessing with direct cd ......maybe I copied
some files to it with direct cd and never re-formated it to be read with
other computers......
I tried to mount it but get the error unrecognized format or something like that........

anyone know a way to make it readable.....or close the format with cdrecord or xcdroast.......or any software for linux?

any help would be appreciated........Id like to see whats on this disk...its kinda like finding buried treasure but not being able to open
the chest.......(I would pop it in a windows box and do it .....but I havent had a windows box for a long time......an refuse to re-install it........)

Hi

Hopefully you've got this in your kernel:
mount -t udf /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom



If not, check out compiling it (possibly as a module as to avoid an entire recompile) and then go.

Cool

Hmmm... That is the filesystem that DirectCD uses, so that's actually quite odd.

However, make sure your drive isn't the problem (if you can get something to test that... say a newer drive?).

Check out:

And then follow the link to the homepage to learn more.

Cool
