Hi, someone has burnt me a whole load of data onto a couple of dvds using MAC OSX.

I am trying to mount the dvds from my linux box but having no luck at all. It claims no medium found.

What filesystem type should I be trying to mount as?

The filesystem they used when burning the DVDs could be any number of things depending on what software they used. It could be UDF, ISO9660, HFS or HFS+. The latter two I don't believe linux will deal with. If they burned it without the use of 3rd party software like Toast, it's probably iso9660.

if else, it's probably UDF...
