    Question Nothing happens after inserting VCD in my DVD drive (CD not detected)

    When I insert any VCD into my DVD drive, it spins for half a minute and then nothing happens.

    I was able to play this VCD on my Win7 laptop.

    Also if I insert any DVD in Ubuntu then it plays fine. So DVD drive is working fine.

    After inserting VCD I tried the following things,
    * Through VLC selected Media->Open Disc->VCD (tried with various track numbers)
    * Also tried with devices as /dev/cdrom /dev/sr0
    * Tried mounting through mount command
    $ sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
    mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0

    I figured out that /dev/sr0 must be my CD-ROM through the dmesg command.
    $ dmesg | grep CD
    [ 0.902222] scsi 0:0:0:0: CD-ROM Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200A 1.06 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
    [ 0.904686] cdrom: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
    [ 0.904864] sr 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
    [ 2.560435] scsi 7:0:0:0: CD-ROM HUAWEI Mass Storage 2.31 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0
    [ 2.582577] sr 7:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr1

    The sr1 is actually a USB stick.

    Any pointers?

    Here is my Ubuntu version,
    $ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.

    The linux VCD XCD support had problems with Form2 file format..

    Does this work ?
    mount -t cdfs -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom

    less /proc/cdfs

    I've never laid hands on a VCD, so hard to help.

    There is no cdfs option for mount. Tried the following and other options as well. These are the main errors I am getting.
    $ sudo mount -t adfs -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
    mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0
    $ sudo mount -t cifs -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
    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


    Here is the man page section that describes the types supported,

    The argument following the -t is used to indicate the filesystem
    type. The filesystem types which are currently supported
    include: adfs, affs, autofs, cifs, coda, coherent, cramfs,
    debugfs, devpts, efs, ext, ext2, ext3, ext4, hfs, hfsplus, hpfs,
    iso9660, jfs, minix, msdos, ncpfs, nfs, nfs4, ntfs, proc, qnx4,
    ramfs, reiserfs, romfs, squashfs, smbfs, sysv, tmpfs, ubifs,
    udf, ufs, umsdos, usbfs, vfat, xenix, xfs, xiafs. Note that
    coherent, sysv and xenix are equivalent and that xenix and
    coherent will be removed at some point in the future — use sysv
    instead. Since kernel version 2.1.21 the types ext and xiafs do
    not exist anymore. Earlier, usbfs was known as usbdevfs. Note,
    the real list of all supported filesystems depends on your ker‐
    nel.

    It seems cdfs as a separate package had stopped at kernel 2.6.27..maybe it was included into std kernel filesystem support..

    Sorry, don't know.
