Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
After listening to a music CD with gnome-cd i would like to eject the cd and
replace it. Eject works fine. But clicking the same button to close the tray
does not work. This worked fine in FC4 on the same hardware.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. play cd with gnome-cd
2. click eject-cd
3. click eject-cd to close tray
cd tray does not close.
cd tray to close.
when i close the tray manually on the hardware, a new instance of gnome-cd is
launched. this is irritating.

Do you still see the same problem in FC6? (I don't have any hardware where the
closing of the device is motorised).

Make sure you have "gnome-cd --unique --play --device %d" as the command to
launch when inserting audio CDs in the removable discs preferences.
Thanks for the query for more information. I still see the problem with tray
closing in FC 6. Thank you for the gnome-cd command string above. That solved
the problem with multiple instances of gnome-cd being created.
The code to close the tray is disabled in the code, no idea why:
gnomecdrom_class->close_tray = gst_cdrom_close_tray;
Reported upstream at:
That code looks like it's completely busted. I'm leaving it up to upstream to
sort out, my attempts were far from successful, and the code base is horrible.
