Mounting cdrom

If you are using a pc with linux that does not have automount feature, here are the steps that you can do to mount it on linux terminal.

  • After inserting the cd, create a folder. Usually we create a folder inside folder /mnt. Type --> mkdir /mnt/cdrom.
  • To mount it, type --> mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom. This step will mount the content of the cdrom to the folder /mnt/cdrom
  • After you finish, just type --> umount /mnt/cdrom to unmount it from the folder.
You can also use this steps for other devices such as flash drive. To check where is the folder containing the device, type --> df.
This command is for the user to see disk space usage.
