Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 139068
CD-ROM icon on desktop on logon

Description of problem:
Everytime I log on, there is a 'CD-ROM' icon on my desktop, as if
there were a disc in my secondary drive (which there is not).
Double-click opens 'CD/DVD Creator' and 'Eject' causes my secondary
drive (cdrecorder) to eject, upon which the icon disappears.
I just got a new cdrecorder today, and after installing it, the icon
went away. So was this a hardware or driver problem (drive indicating
that a disc was present) ?
Have you look anywhere else to see if other people is seeing this? I
don't see any problem here.
When you had this problem, what was the output of 'df'?? I suppose the
CD wasn't mounted, right? AFAIK nautilus uses /etc/mtab to check what
volumes are mounted. Do you see your CD drive listed in mtab?
(It's hard to say now, since I no longer have that problem.)
When the icon was on the desktop, the cd wasn't mounted. There wasn't
even a disc in the drive.
davidz: Did we add any burn:/// gnome-vfs volumes?
We only add burn:/// volumes if we detect a blank disc in the drive -
there have been issues with the ide-cd driver in recent kernels
though, maybe that has triggered it.
I guess it is ok to close this bug... right?
