I am unable copy files from 'mpegav' within video CDs in my Ubuntu 14.04. After a extended search now I understand I need to mount the cd using 'cdfs':

sudo mount -t cdfs -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/data/cd

but I get error:

mount: unknown filesystem type 'cdfs'

So decided to install cdfs module:

sudo module-assistant get cdfs

It show this message:

Where from I will get cdfs source?

The cdfs-src package is deprecated (reason: doesn't work with linux 3.1 or later) since Ubuntu 13.04, you won't find a repo to install it for 14.04.

Since ISO 9660 is also known as CDFS (Compact Disc File System), I would try as suggested by Archemar to mount your video CD with:

sudo mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /media/data/cd
