I tried to burn a livecd iso with my DVD-RW, and it seems it can not burn with cdrecord command in default tao mode.

Then I switched to sao mode, it was burned.

But it seems I can not get the burned disc mounted.

mount: you must specify the filesystem type

And iso9660 file system type does not work.

What's the problem?


1) burn disc:

cdrecord -dev=1,0,0 -sao xxx.iso

2) mount:

mount -o loop,ro -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/disc

iso9660 should be the default anyways. Have you verified the disc has been burned properly? – John T Aug 27 '09 at 5:42
Please post the command you're using to 1) burn the DVD 2) mount the DVD. – nagul Aug 27 '09 at 6:22
