Ubuntu Can't Mount LiveFS CDs Burned on Vista
System: Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon
Updated to all the latest updates.
Problem: Every time a friend gives me a data CD burned on Windows Vista, Ubuntu can't mount it. From Gnome I simply get a pop up stating it cannot be mounted. See attached screenshot. From the command line I get the following:
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
dmesg output is attached.
The last 2 lines seem to pertain to the problem they read:
[ 597.412000] UDF-fs: No fileset found
[ 597.544000] Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
I have no idea what so is, it doesn't seem to be a valid command.
This has happened to me with 3 CDs, each one was burned was burned using Windows Vista's built in burning feature. I can verify that the CD's contain data since I was able to read them with a Windows XP machine and get the files.
I'm not sure what other information would be helpful so please let me know.
