How to Access Files on a DVD-ROM Device

  1. Verify the DVD-ROM device is automatically mounted.

    $ ls /cdrom

    Note -

    If the system has both a CD-ROM and DVD-ROM device, the CD-ROM might be named /cdrom/cdrom0 and the DVD-ROM might be named /cdrom/cdrom1. If the system only has a DVD-ROM device, then try using /cdrom/cdrom0.

  2. Display content with ls command.

    $ ls /cdrom/cdrom1

    Automatic display with the CDE file manager is not implemented yet. All other CDE file manager functions--drag and drop for copying and imagetool features--are available.
