Unable to mount UDF Volume

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I am using a Sony Vaio VGN-FE890 laptop running Arch Linux kernel 2.6.30-ARCH.

Inserting a CD into the optical drive makes it spin for a bit, then do nothing. Running dmesg returns the following:

Unable to mount UDF Volume

Error:

Unable to mount UDF Volume

Error mounting: mount: block device/dev/sr0 is write-

protected, mounting read-only

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/

sr0,

Missing codepage or helper program, or other error

In some cases useful info is found in syslog-try

dmesg tail or so

What Should I do?

I am not familiar with Ubuntu and all the commands. I am used to Windows/DOS and I can get my head around programming using terminal if instructed carefully.

Any help would be fully appreciated.

Thanks.

Hmmm. Inserting a CD into the optical drive should mount automatically. Insert the CD then open a terminal and try typing one of these commands:

 

  • sudo mount /dev/cdrom
  • sudo mount /dev/scd1
  • sudo mount /dev/dvd
 
If none of them work, type:
  • sudo gedit /etc/fstab
 
And find the line:
  • /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
 
Add a # sign at the start of the line:
  • # /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
 
Save the file and try to insert a CD into the optical drive. If this doesn't mount the CD, restart your computer and try again. By the way, CDs that were burned using Windows Media Player and the likes cannot be mounted in Linux distros and will display error mounting.
 
Also, be sure to have all the codecs installed before typing in the commands I gave you.
 
Good Luck!
