There is a bit of info out there on this...maybe it's your search criteria.... I just did a quick search on google with this

"accessing CD-ROM using Unix"

And got a bunch of stuff (Results 1 - 10 of about 60,900)

So it's out there - and I'd guess by looking at the first site amongst those pages you'll find everything you need to know.

If your next step is to mount and copy, you will need to mount it to a directory on your system.


mount -ro cdfs <cdrom device> /cdrom (mount point on UNIX)

Your syntax may vary. Check the mount command in the manpages.

depending on what u use on Linux(red hat and mandrake) just go : mount /mnt/cdrom
if that does not work
try get some answers from: man mount
any way it strongly depends on what u use...
sorry but that how it is...
