command line: how find dvd or cd file tree to view content
If I insert a dvd or cd, using a file manager like Thunar or Dolphin, its content becomes automatically available, but its path begins with what I assume is the volume label, e.g. "SlackDVD" for the Slackware dvd.
But if can only use the command line, and insert a dvd or cd whose volume label is unknown, how do I find it?
That will show you where it's mounted and what the label is; SlackDVD is the label of the distribution disk.
Hope this helps some.
I tried that, mount does not show it. With or without a SlackDVD in the drive this is what mount shows
~ $ mount
/dev/sda3 on / type ext4 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sdb1 on /500gb type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/sdc1 on /3tb type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096,default_permissions)
