Read a Mac CD in Ubuntu

Nothing special, but always handy if a i-dude comes over with his music but which was formated for his MAC.

How to mount?
First you need to make sure that you umount the disc in case it got automounted.

umount /media/<username>/<volumename>

Problem is that we not always know which format was used, so let's start to guess:

sudo mkdir /media/test
sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /media/test
ls /media/test
sudo mount -t udf /dev/cdrom /media/test
ls /media/test
sudo mount -t hfs /dev/cdrom /media/test
ls /media/test
sudo mount -t hfsplus /dev/cdrom /media/test
ls /media/test

Most probably you will be lucky to find the right format and you can start abusing the disk :-) LET's PARTY...
