View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mounting a Weird CD

January 2nd, 2011, 02:35 AM
I'm trying to mount a CD that came with a new Samsung laser printer, so that I can view the user guide.

Ubuntu doesn't auto mount it.
And if I manually mount it (sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom ~/testing)
It does mount a filesystem but there's not much in it.

~/testing/Linux/noarch/at_opt/share/utils$ ls -a
. .. SetIPApplet.html SetIPApplet.jar

... just a directory structure with two files.

But no user guide visible. (I know it's on there ...)

What's going on. Is this CD rom using an odd filesystem which linux cannot read?

Printed below the inner ring of the CD is
IFPI LC50 (or maybe LC5Q)

(I can get the user guide through windows. But I just want to know why Linux can't wholly read this CD.)

Does it do the same in Windows? Will it load there?

Yes, it works in windows.

There is, though, no directory structure Linux/noarch/at_opt/share/utils/.

While running in windows, there are folders: Application MANUAL Printer Setup.
