    this should work:

    Code:
    wodim --devices
    the output should be something like /dev/sdX, where /dev/sdX is your drive.

    create this directory if it does not exist already:

    Code:
    sudo mkdir /media/cdrom0
    then

    Code:
    sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sdX /media/cdrom0/

    the first code returns this:

    wodim: No such file or directory.
    Cannot open SCSI driver!
    For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
    For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
    For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
    the wodim documentation.

    that's odd...
    i just copied/pasted that same code on a terminal, and it worked.

    its also funny how it tells you "For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'."

    so, it's telling you to run the same code you just entered...

    seems more like a glitch in wodim than anything else.


    anyway, cd drives are usually scd.

    try

    Code:
    ls /dev | grep scd
    i have two, so it tells me scd0 and scd1.
    if you only have one, it should be scd0.

    so try the rest of the code, based on that.

    hope it helps
