not able to read DVD on DVD ROM

Postby monty07 on Fri Jan 11, 2008 12:17 am

have a slight problem with an install of linux mint 3.1, and it is this: My DVD-rom drive has a tendancy to not read dvds, claiming that thee is no media inserted when I attempt to mount it from the 'computer' menu with this message

Cannot mount volume.
Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume UDLF Volume.


[b]my /etc/fstab file looks like this:

Am I reading that right? Are you trying to run a linux system on an ntfs file system? How? I mean why? If you are, then I wouldn't be surprised at anything that went wrong! In fact, I am surprised that is the only problem you are having.

If this is the case I hope someone else will be able to help you. I never had any luck doing it and would recommend re doing it on a ext3 file system.

If I am wrong about the file system re post and I will try to help you. Let me know about your drive hookup. How many hard drives and cd rom drives you have attached. Also how they are grouped on your hard drive controllers and any other symptoms you might be having.

Good luck,

Fred

No this is probably the Linux partition.
Code: Select all
# /dev/sda5
UUID=4b66675a-19c5-42ed-9fac-fb6abce6bc14 / ext2 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
