Thread: Cannot read discs

Yes, all these discs are home made, and I'm pretty sure that they are all finalized.
The discs are not all the same brand, but all burned by Nero.
I'll have to check to see that they still run in Windows and that'll take time, right now I don't have access to a Windows computer.
Have you encountered something like this before? or am I (or my computer) just deranged?
Backing up 50 DVDs is going to hurt.
Well, it's common if you don't have a UDF support of something, but no, this isn't common.
Does anyone know if Nero uses UDF file system when burning DVD's?
I'm not sure if you can just download it, I think it runs as a module or is compiled into the kernel itself.
You can check if the module is built and running with this command
lsmod |grep udf
lsmod |grep Udf
Post the output of this command:
I'm not real familiar with Mandriva, use your package manager to search for udf or udf-tools.
The first two commands didn't do anything.
cat /etc/fstab gave:
# Entry for /dev/sda1 : UUID=e04f8eb2-daa7-11dd-8ec6-7d34e5d08d4e / ext3 noatime 1 1 # Entry for /dev/sda6 : UUID=e50950be-daa7-11dd-8050-3f9a1c89a9d0 /home ext3 noatime 1 2 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sda5 : UUID=e50066de-daa7-11dd-974f-01c0404ea911 swap swap defaults 0 0
So you can play any store bought DVD's?
I think you should stick one of the unreadable DVD's into the drive and wait a minute, then type this command
You'll see a ton a stuff scroll by, but you only want to see the last few lines really, if you see any errors, then post them back here.
I got no errors whatsoever.
Interesting though, I did find this in all that stuff:
ata2.00: ATAPI: TSSTcorpCD/DVDW TS-L632D, TO04, max UDMA/33 ata2.00: configured for UDMA/33
scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L632D TO04 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/62x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20 sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
By the way, I checked, and these discs are readable in a Windows machine.
Really, UDF support is all I can think of. You might be able to recompile your kernel to include UDF support. It's a bit tricky for the forst timers but it's really not complicated at all. Let me know if you'd like to have a shot at it.
I'm not real familiar with Mandriva but where is your kernel source located? Use the ls command and post the results if you want to recompile your kernel.
