Description Matthias Clasen 2005-10-17 10:49:35 EDT
The context menu of the cd drive in "my computer" should desensitise a
few menu items, e.g. copy cd, if the drive is empty.

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-11-07 16:24:31 EST
Hi Bastien,

Did you offer to write a patch for this?
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2005-11-08 05:17:49 EST
I offered to write a patch for gnome-vfs to detect whether there is a disc
inside the drive (so that we could tell whether there's something to
play/copy/whatever even if the disc isn't mounted).

It would be required for this feature to be implemented.
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2005-11-08 07:46:38 EST
Was the offer accepted ?
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2005-11-08 08:28:25 EST
Was up to Alex :)

alex> I think its probably ok though. As long as we have a way to return both
has media, no media and don't know.

Comment 7 Christopher Aillon 2006-01-27 16:55:13 EST
was this ever upstreamed?
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-01-27 17:04:16 EST
I think the upstream bug is 
Comment 9 Bastien Nocera 2006-05-19 05:35:23 EDT
There's already an upstream patch to disable the entry if the disc is blank:

It should be easy to disable it if the drive is empty as well.
Comment 10 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-25 13:59:14 EDT
Seems that there is some silly controversy holding the patch back upstream.
Should be just go with Bastians patch ?
Comment 11 Bastien Nocera 2006-07-26 04:42:36 EDT
I asked Jon to review it.
Comment 12 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-04 16:57:25 EDT
Fix will be in the next upstream version.
Comment 13 Matthias Clasen 2006-08-12 22:23:01 EDT
fixed in 2.15.6
