Hello;

having trouble mounting a Memorex USB DVD burner ..

lshw shows it as /dev/sr1

tried:

susdo mount /dev/sr1 /mnt/memorex
mount: block device /dev/sr1 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: /dev/sr1: can't read superblock

this is with a blank DVD in it ..

Any ideas ?? Thnx

It needed a written-to DVD?
