UDF problem

Hi everyone,

I am Kyle, I just want to ask how to mount UDF DVD in Linux system (especially Fedora). Is there any software or command which can do that?

Best wishes

In Theory...

In theory you should be able to do something like this:

  % mount -t udf /dev/dvd /mnt

I say in theory because it may not work for the following reasons:

  • You don't have a new enough kernel that supports the version of UDF that your disk uses.
  • You don't have all the UDF support installed. Go into your package manager and search for packages with UDF in the name, install anything that appears relevant.
  • You may have a UDF version that isn't quite supported yet even though all indications are that it should be.
  • You're referring to something besides Universal Disk Format :).

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
