I have a CD-RW which I want to use as bootable CD. The problem is I cannot access it.
Tried firstly to format the disk. Just went on Nautilus, selected the CD and clicked on format. Does not work for any file system. The error message for FAT:
Error creating file system: Command-line 'mkfs.vfat -I -n "AA" "/dev/sr0"' exited with non-zero exit status 1: stdout: 'mkfs.fat 4.1 (2017-01-24) attribute "partition" not found stderr: 'mkfs.vfat: unable to discover size of /dev/sr0 (udisks-error-quark, 0)
The window that pops up does not display the CD size and says the device is read-only.
I've read in some places that you have to mount the CD-RW before using it. So I tried
mount /dev/sr0 /mnt
but it raises another error:
mount: /mnt: can't read superblock on /dev/sr0.
A relevant fact is that the disk works fine in another machine (with Windows XP, not Linux). Is it possible that the culprit is the optical drive?
