Unable to mount CD
Ubuntu 12.04

This time nothing wrong with Ubuntu, this CD has old photos but it refuses to open.
Appreciate to help me to get this photos.

This error come when opening the CD
Unable to mount OldDrive

Error mounting: mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so

Tried with sudo mount but no result, and its only one CD

Try the "sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt " one but use sr0 instead of cdrom.
$ sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt

Maybe the cd is broken. Can you mount other cd's ?

Luis M.Jacinto (ljacinto) said : #4

CD does not look broken and can mount any cd's.

Have you tried using that CD on another computer?

Marc Volker Dickmann (marc-q) said : #6

I mean the disk you try to mount could be broken not the drive itself. (That disk with the photos)

Luis M.Jacinto (ljacinto) said : #7

The CD drive is working perfectly the problem is the CD with photos, just shows the error.

Have you tried this disk on another computer?

Best Marc Volker Dickmann (marc-q) said : #9

The CD with the photos could be damaged in a hidden way. So it could be recovered with some hours of work or you could forget about it. Next way using multiple sources for important backups like a NAS or the cloud but CD's or DVD's aren't good for backups cause they don't holding up against the environment.
