USING DVD-RAM as a file system ( like directcd ) To use a DVD-RAM for writing and reading like a file system, use the following commands. This will work only at AIX 5.2 and above. 1) Put DVD-RAM into drive 2) udfcreate -d /dev/cd0 3) mount -V udfs /dev/cd0 /mnt If you get error, ensure /etc/vfs contains this line: udfs 34 /sbin/helpers/udfmnthelp 4) mount -V udfs /dev/cd0 /mnt ... then use this as a regular filesystem.
