I must be doing some wrong.
fred@debian:~$ sudo mount -t UDF /media/cdrom1
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help
mount : list mounted filesystems
mount -l : idem, including volume labels
So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
mount device : mount device at the known place
mount directory : mount known device here
mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
mount --bind olddir newdir
or move a subtree:
mount --move olddir newdir
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd].
For many more details, say man 8 mount .

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,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I am missing dvdrw in my / dir, however I got cdrom which is link to
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 2006-03-19 03:46 cdrom -> media/cdrom
but my fstab does not have media/cdrom but rather /media/cdrom0 and 1.
here is my #fstab
!# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hdb9 /home ext3 defaults 0 2

/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/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
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).
