Mounting CDROM Without Mapaping UC To LC

this is surely a newbie question, so I should know the answer, but I’m fighting with mounting a CD such that filenames are NOT mapped to lowercase (I need to use its on-board tools for accessing files on it while mounted on CentOS 6.5, and those tools assume uppercawse, since they assume the entire world runs Windoze.)

but despite my best efforts, it keeps being mounted with UC-LC mapping enabled. here’s what I’ve been trying:

mount -t iso9660 -o norock,remount,ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uidP0,gidP0,iocharset=utfi,mode00,dmode00 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cd

and even this:

umount /mnt/cd mount -t iso9660 -o norock,ro,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks,uidP0,gidP0,iocharset=utfi,mode00,dmode00 /dev/sr0 /mnt/cd

I’ve also tried using nojoliet both with and without norock, and also map=normal, all to no avail.

I also tried the remount option using the original automount location in /media, and got no better results.

I’m hoping someone out there can point me to what I’m doing wrong.

  • Ah, operator error! I needed map=off, not map=normal.

    and that doesn’t entirely solve the problem either, as the tools don’t seem to work with the “;1” at the endof each filename, either. I don’t see any way to avoid that, so I may be out of luck.
