Strange things are happening! The DVD drive installed on my machine is behaving strangely with some discs that have been burned on a university Windows machines. enter image description here The files were different, but nautilus is showing 4 strange files. There are supposed to be some folders and other files. Can anybody help me?

it looks like the disks were burned in an audio format, rather than a data format. can you confirm or deny this in a windows machine? –  Frank Thomas May 7 '13 at 14:41
I can safely say that it shows DATA files on a windows machine. –  Ishan May 7 '13 at 15:12
@Ishan: What was the file system used while burning? ISO 9660? UDF? Something else? –  Karan May 9 '13 at 15:20
I'm not sure. The University people refuse to tell me anything or let me touch their computer. –  Ishan May 10 '13 at 16:16
Problem gone. It was a problem with the mounting-unmounting of the dvd drive. I was new to linux, so i could not understand. Thanks for all the efforts you people put into this. Mods plz lock topic –  Ishan Aug 10 '13 at 5:49
