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:


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.
