Thanks, Les and Tony. I could after all mount my DVD disk with mount /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd (with /mnt/dvd created previously.) Conclusion: hal seems to be not working properly. In the past, I did not need to mount manually my DVD disks.
OK, but still get a problem: $cd /mnt/dvd $ cp myiso.iso ~/Desktop/ cp: reading `myiso.iso': Input/output error $ Any ideas? Paul
