This question already has an answer here:
Is there any command or any way to know what file system is there on a medium like hard disk or CD/DVD or flash drive etc. From GUI gparted one can know the type on hard disks/pen drive but not of CD/DVD.
I ran the below command to mount my DVD.
ravbholua@ravbholua-Aspire-5315:~/Documents/Other$ sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom ~/Downloads 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 ravbholua@ravbholua-Aspire-5315:~/Documents/Other$
From the error thrown by
mount, I feel that the file system that I had given in the command i.e. 'iso9660' may not be right. From this it strikes my mind to 1st know the f.s. present on the DVD. I'm working on Ubuntu 13.04.
