Opening MultiRom CDs

Postby marxmint » Sun Jun 29, 2008 5:11 am

Hi, as a new Mint fan and unexperienced linux user I've been having quite a lot of difficulties in opening a MultiRom (video+audio) CD with my Elyssa. It simply reads the CD as an audio CD. Does anyone know what can be done about it?

Thanks a lot and congratulations to the Mint official developpers.

Try in a terminal

Code: Select all

sudo mount "the_address_of_your_cdrom" /media/cdrom3

Of course you have to create 'cdrom3' before (you can use another name if you prefer)
Then in the '/media/cdrom3' folder you should see the content of your CD :wink:

For unmount the CD the command is

Code: Select all

sudo umount "the_address_of_your_cdrom"
