You could just dd the DVD contents to a new ISO and compare it to the original ISO: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/Vicibox_test.iso md5sum /tmp/Vicibox_test.iso If you get the same MD5SUM then the optical drive is capable of reading the media without errors.

I would try pressing any other key that's not one of the f* keys when the small logo appears at the bottom of the screen during the boot process. That's the way to access the advanced boot options in the Ubuntu DVD. For more details on this go to the Boot Options page.

This is not a problem about ISO 9660 but about drive and/or CD/DVD medium. Since you have this with several media, probably the drive is going bad. The message "mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0" indicates that the DVD drive did not yet recognize the medium when the system tried to mount it. The fact that it sometimes works after some waiting indicates ...

ViciBox v.6 is based on OpenSUSE 13.1 so there should be no problems putting the ViciBox iso on a USB flash drive using UNetbootin from the Ubuntu Software Center. OpenSUSE is on UNetbootin's list of compatible distros. You should reformat the USB flash drive as FAT32 in GParted first if you have ever used the USB flash drive to boot a Linux distro. Also ...

The question is a bit old by now, but still doesn't have an answer. So: It appears the folder /media/cdrom doesn't exists, that's why you get "mount point ... does not exist". Second, as /dev/cdrom is not included on fstab, if you want to mount it manually you must specify the type of filesystem with the -t parameter. Fortunately, there's an auto option. ...

I got this and could manually mount the disc as iso9660 instead of udf. I think a recent update in Ubuntu must have change the default for dvd media sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt
