The default "filesystem type" used by mount is "ufs", so you are trying to mount the DVD disk as a "UFS filesystem". It is certainly possible to create a DVD disk with a UFS filesystem, but the most common format for storing data in DVD disks is the filesystem known as "cd9660", so you may have to use: mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /cdrom More details about creating and using CD-ROM disks, and DVD-ROM disks can be found in our Handbook. You can read the relevant sections at: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/creating-cds.html http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/creating-dvds.html When you find the time, please feel free to skim through the rest of the Handbook too. It contains a huge wealth of information about using FreeBSD, and I'm sure you will find a lot of interestings bit there. - Giorgos _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
