Is there any way to mount multisession disk that was burnt in windows.

Put your CD in the drive and post the output of sudo fdisk -l. Lets find out if we could mount it manually.

This is the result of sudo fdisk -l

I can't seem to find your cdrom device listed there. What does

cat /etc/fstab print?

Assuming your cdrom device file is /dev/sr0, you may try the below command to mount the device manually (after putting in the media)

sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom

/dev/scd0 is the device file for your cdrom. Did you try the mount command ?

sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0

What is the command to unmount a partition.

kpkeerthi

In this context, it would be
sudo umount /dev/scd0

But its displaying there is no such device.

Ok.i am using vmware to read my multisession disks.

I must continue the same.

i can get that its being detected but unable to mount my DVD.

Then is there any software like My phone xplorer in windows to download my SMS Contacts etc to my computer.

Do you have the disk media in the drive when you ran that command?

Also, I wonder why your device is not listed in the fdisk -l output? Thats why you get 'no such device'.

What happens when you put in a CD that was not burned using Windows? Does fdisk -l list? Does it mount automatically?

All other cd and dvd's are working, including which i have burnt in windows without multisession.

I suggest you file a bug in launchpad with dmesg output after inserting your media. Good luck.
