Mounting PC sessions on hybrid CD-ROMs
BeOS seems to have trouble mounting the PC partition on hybrid CD-ROMs which contain both Macintosh and Windows sessions. Tracker can’t and DriveSetup can’t, but Terminal can mount these ISO 9660 sessions. [Editors’ note: ISO sessions on standard, non-hybrid CDs mount just fine].
- Open a Terminal window.
- Type “
mountvolume -dd” to find the device name of your CD-ROM drive (i.e
/dev/disk/ide/atapi/1/master/0/rawfor the CD-ROM drive connected as master to the second IDE channel).
- Create in the root directory of the filesystem a new directory by typing, for example “
- Mount the CD-ROM using the “mount” command and the option “-t iso9660”, i.e:
mount -t iso9660 /dev/disk/ide/atapi/1/master/0/raw /wincd
