Not able to find DVD which is already inserted in pc. Kindly suggest the location where we will detect it.

Version : ubuntu 16.04


There are some things to check...

  1. Have you installed udftools? If not ...

    sudo apt install udftools

    udftools is a tool for UDF filesystems (= cd and dvd).

  2. eject -n This should show you the device.

  3. eject or eject -t should eject your DVD.
  4. sudo hwinfo --cdrom should show you info about the DVD.

Please edit results into your question. Since this is partly a comment ... Ill remove it if it has not got a working method.

Generally ...

  • DVD automatically mount in /media/
  • In Nautilus DVD will appear in the panel on the left hand side.
  • I am window's user. So I don't new about it. I am using this first time. So Please tell me what is udftools? – H.D. Sep 27 '17 at 14:22
  • And for installing that any code is needed? – H.D. Sep 27 '17 at 14:24
  • See line 4 on what udftools is. Line 3 is an installation of udftools; it will show an error if you try to install it and it is already installed. Lines 5, 6 and 7 are commands you can type in command line. – Rinzwind Sep 27 '17 at 14:25
