I loaded PhotRec in Puppy Linux, but my quick blanked CD-RW does not appear in the PhotoRec drive list. Only the hard drives appear. No chance to see if my CD-RW is listed size as 0 or 2048 bytes because the CD drive is not listed at all.
In fact, the blank CD-RW is not even mounted by Linux. It cannot mount a blank disc. So how can PhotoRec see the blank disc when Linux cannot mount a blank disc?
I type into the command line:
Code: Select all
mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom -t iso9660 -o session=0
Is there something else I need to do to get Linux to mount the quick erased disc?mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
