    Checking leojreimroc's post.


    Ok so I managed to post it. I deleted all but the first line and posted that. After, I cut/paste the rest when I edited the already posted thread. This did not give me any problems, here is the full thread.







    I'm having problems mounting DVDRs into my dvd drive. I can mount CDRs no problem, if they contain both data or music. DVDs with data doesn't want to mount. Here is the error I get while trying to mount it.

    joelcormier@ubuntu:/$ sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt
    mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
    missing codepage or helper program, or other error
    In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
    dmesg | tail or so


    Reading some other threads, I found that most people were asking for sudo lshw -C disk, so I'll post it here.


    joelcormier@ubuntu:~$ sudo lshw -C disk
    [sudo] password for joelcormier:

    Testing_user has copied/pasted your post and it didn't force 15 posts limit.

    Were trying to post exactly same contents that are posted by testing_user? Either something is missing in the post or you were facing some other problem.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I'm afraid I don't know. I'm pretty sure that's the post I had at the time, as I copy/pasted it. Who knows....

    For the sake of clarity, I just ran some tests as a new user and found the following to hold true regarding posting web links and email addresses:

    Will post:

    google.com


    Will not post:

    test@google.com

    www.google.com

    http://www.google.com

    Just out of curiosity, is a new member able to parse the text in [CODE] tags and post? The reason I'm asking is because much of the time the errors that are reported include URL's to repositories.

    I'm gonna guess no, they probably cannot post any type of URL with or without [code] tags.

    You're right, Mike. I just tried it with a little test account. No go, even with tags.
    Cool... just wondering.

    I have the same problem and it's pissing me off, as I don't have URL's, at first I had a screenshot but then I removed that link and still it said there was a URL in my post, so I replaced al the dots with [dot] and the @'s with [at] but didn't help.

    This is very annoying and will cause people to spam to get their 15 posts.

    This is obviously what you are doing, as you have just made 15 posts in less than an hour. Just so you know, we are wise to your tactics, and I will report your actions to the moderators. You look like a spammer to me, and spammers will find themselves quickly banned!
