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?

Thanks
Best wishes
Kyle

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 :).
