I just noticed that if I insert a DVD, the drive will start spinning but it will not show the mounted disc. If insert a CD, it is mounted, but in some cases it says it is EMPTY CD, but it is not! For CDs it used to ask me what to do with the media inserted. But for DVDs, it doesn't even do that (Also there is some exceptions about DVDs).
This happens with all self-made DVD's I have. Created those quite some time ago on Windows XP with Nero. My DVD player autostarts the DVDs. Windows 7 also plays/sees the files on the DVDs Commercial DVDs open normally, just as self-made data DVDs (old ones made with Gnomebaker), as do audio CDs and data CDs.
I have an odd problem in that sometimes when I insert a CD / DVD either blank or with applications on them (programs, not audio or video) in the tray Ubuntu gives me an error "Unable to mount Blank CD=R Disc - Location is already mounted".
How do I get the error to stop showing on blank DVDs?
I use my phone for GPS and music when I'm driving almost everyday. When I'm using the GPS I keep it on my leg, which makes it slide around a lot, fall etc. I had the same problem with my iPhone, and was never able to find any type of mount, but maybe there is something new out now.
For several years I've been happily burning files to DVDs using k3b. A couple of months ago I began encountering a problem that now has me completely bewildered. Some recently burned DVDs will not mount in Ubuntu, although they seem to mount fine (and pass integrity tests) on several Macs.
I'm running Ubuntu Karmic, and for some reason it wont mount dvd's. I started having problems when I upgraded to Karmic when it was released. I am able to mount cds jsut fine, just no dvds. A friend gave me another drive to try, and no dice. So i have the disc for maple 13 that I need for school, i pop it in, nothing. I put the dvd in my wifes machine and it works just fine.
When I type mount at the prompt, I get the drives that are mounted.
I have two drives in my system, and I am trying to mount the second one.
I am trying to mount doing the following:
mount /dev/sda2 /hdDrive #hdDrive is a sub directory that has already been created
Typing mount doesn't show it to be mounted, but when I try to mount it as above, it comes back already mounted.
My system (Ubuntu 14.04) recognizes my CD/DVD drive correctly and the model matches my bios (TSSTcorpCD/DVDW TS-H652L). However, when I insert a DVD it doesn't mount the drive, doesn't matter if it's a movie or data DVD. When I insert a music CD it works correctly.
