Problem with cd-rw

I'm having a problemm with reading cdrw under red hat7.3, someone told me something about Juliette but i got no idea how to fix it. Linux generaly seems to have a problem with reading cdr burn under win.

The basic question is:

What is the format of a data on the CD ?

You should be able to mount any standard CD (cdr, cdrw, etc) with mount -t iso9660 /device /mount_point.

If not, you will definitely have to find out the exact media type... I think I have heard something about some applications that create CD-RW - they may have their own proprietary format, although in order to call it a Compact Disk, they should have to follow iso9660...

So it may also be a limitation imposed by the application, not the OS.

repl. to Neo

The cdrw was written under win 2000, using Direct CD

What format does Direct CD use when writing data to disk?

Linux can read man formats. The following is from the linux mount man page:

-t vfstype

The argument following the -t is used to indicate
the file system type. The file system types which
are currently supported are listed in
linux/fs/filesystems.c: adfs, affs, autofs, coda,
coherent, devpts, efs, ext, ext2, hfs, hpfs,
iso9660, minix, msdos, ncpfs, nfs, ntfs, proc,
qnx4, romfs, smbfs, sysv, udf, ufs, umsdos, vfat,
xenix, xiafs. Note that coherent, sysv and xenix
are equivalent and that xenix and coherent will be
removed at some point in the future -- use sysv
instead. Since kernel version 2.1.21 the types ext
and xiafs do not exist anymore.
If you burn in vfat format on Windows, for example, you must mount in vfat format. Same is true for all filesystem types. If CD Direct burns in iso9660 format, the same holds true. Best guess, as Livin' said is to try iso9660 first, if you don't know for sure and can't find out easily.
