How to mount a DVD in Ubuntu

This tutorial will teach you how to mount or unmount a CD or DVD in Ubuntu. This very simple method can be done through your terminal and only requires the use of a command line.

Assuming that your CD or DVD is located in media/cdrom0, there are two lines of code that will enable you to mount or unmount a disc:

  • To mount a CD or DVD, simply open your terminal and type
sudo mount /media/cdrom0/ -o unhide
  • Once your CD is mounted, you can access your data through your directory.
  • To unmount or eject the disc, open your terminal and enter
sudo umount /media/cdrom0/ -l
