Re: mounting a dvdrw

First off its mount -t iso9660 and secondly, you should not use ISO9660 for DVDs, only use UDF, otherwise, you will face some major problems.

One of which is you cannot have > 2GB files on an ISO9660 formatted DVD.

I am trying to mount the dvd-rw but getting some errors.

~$ sudo mount -iso9660 -noatime /media/cdrom1
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdd,

      In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
      dmesg | tail  or so

here is my #fstab

/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
when I need to mount/umount the dvdrw I have to do
#mount /dve/hdd or #mount /media/cdrom1
I would like to do
#mount /dvdrw
do I make a symlink in my root dir like this then
#ln -s /dev/hdd /dvdrw

You can do, but you need to change /etc/fstab too.

Realise that the default is to use /media/cdrom1 , zo maybe it's better
to use that, or make a symlink from /dvdrw to /media/cdrom1.

When you use a 2.6 kernel, CDroms's are mounted automatically (when you
did not turn that off).
