Description of problem:
Right clicking a DVD icon and selecting 'Eject' on GNOME desktop gives an error and the medium is
not ejected. (It _is_ unmounted).

More details :

[stein@localhost ~]$ eject /dev/scd0 -v
eject: device name is `/dev/scd0'
eject: expanded name is `/dev/scd0'
eject: `/dev/scd0' is not mounted
eject: `/dev/scd0' is not a mount point
eject: `/dev/scd0' is not a multipartition device
eject: unable to open `/dev/scd0'
[stein@localhost ~]$ ls -l /dev/scd0
brw-r-----  1 root disk 11, 0 May 31 19:51 /dev/scd0
[stein@localhost ~]$ ls -l /dev/hda
brw-------  1 stein disk 3, 0 May 31  2005 /dev/hda



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I tried to connect the unit via USB and FireWire. It behaves the same in both cases.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2005-06-06 10:32:31 EDT
$ ls -l /dev/cd*
Comment 3 David Balažic 2005-06-08 03:18:44 EDT
~]$ ls -l /dev/cd*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 Jun  8  2005 /dev/cdrom -> hda
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 Jun  8  2005 /dev/cdrom1 -> hdb
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 Jun  8  2005 /dev/cdrom2 -> hdc
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Jun  7 23:22 /dev/cdrom3 -> scd0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 Jun  8  2005 /dev/cdwriter -> hda
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Jun  7 23:22 /dev/cdwriter1 -> scd0


I also discovered, that the problem happens only, if I plug in the drive after I
logged in :

 - plugin the drive _before_ boot : ls -l /dev/scd0
brw-------  1 stein disk 11, 0 Jun  7 23:22 /dev/scd0

 - plugin the drive after boot, before login : ls -l /dev/scd0
brw-------  1 stein disk 11, 0 Jun  7 23:35 /dev/scd0

 - plugin the drive after logging in : ls -l /dev/scd0
brw-r-----  1 root disk 11, 0 Jun  7 23:39 /dev/scd0

First user who logs in gets all the devices... so you may have to login as an
ordinary user first?
