Hidden files on my dvd


I recently burned a data dvd in windows and it uncluded a hidden directory. After mounting my external dvd drive, I can see all the files except that hidden folder. I've tried ls -a.

Here's the fstab entry I'm using to mount the drive:

/dev/sr0 /home/herve/burner iso9660 users,owner,ro,umask=000 0 0

every other file on the dvd is there except that one directory. I know the folder was burned correctely because I can see it in windows.

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

Unmount the drive , and under your fstab, try adding nohide..

dev/sr0 /home/herve/burner iso9660 users,owner,ro,nohide,umask=000 0 0
I hope this will work...
