I found a bunch of old CDs from my grandma’s house that have a bunch of old family photos, but the computer that they used to make the CDs was a Windows computer. So now it seems that I cannot access them on my own Arch computer. The computer recognizes the CD and even the name, but every time I try to open it via Thunar file manager, it tells me “Error mounting /dev/sr0 at /run/media/user/Documents: Filesystem type iso9660 not configured in kernel…”.
Is there a way to overcome this, or should I just go ahead and toss the CDs 'cause they’re useless?
That’s the thing, I didn’t “do” anything to the kernel, I don’t even know how to. As far as I know, minus updates and a few extra packages installed via Pacman, my system is very “stock”. And either way, I suspect that the reason I cannot mount the CD is because I’m missing something that this kernel that I’m currently using either doesn’t have or doesn’t support. What are your thoughts? Retrieving these family pictures is especially important to my mom, any help would be appreciated.
I try to never write commands with sudo. IMHO, this is the mistake Manjaro wiki makes. And then some users are running everything with sudo, eg. mkdir in their home. Anyway, OP figured it out or else he would get “Operation not permitted.”
You’re right, it worked. I used the GUI tool that comes with the settings manager, installed 6.1.55-1, and rebooted. Then ran modprobe isofs and boom, it magically started being able to actually access the disk. What I want to know is why did it work?
Why was my kernel so severely out of date? And why wasn’t isofs working with 5.15.131-1? and why was pacman saying that I had 1.15.133-1 installed, yet uname -r said that it was 1.15.131-1 that was actually running?
Should probably work without manually loading module as well. (I would think.)
That happens when you don’t reboot. And then old kernel is still loaded while there is new one installed with new modules. That is also the answer to why loading isofs (or any other module) isn’t working, no matter which kernel.
That’s so strange because I always reboot after I update my computer. The only thing I did this time was use the reboot button offered by xfce4-session-logout rather than typing sudo reboot after updating with pacman.
