Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191123
empty SCSI CDRW device generates: Device not ready log messages
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:41:28 EST
Description of problem:
I have DVD and CDRW devices on a SCSI chain attached to a Symbios Sym53c8XX
based controller. The CDRW generates continuous log messages:
"kernel: Device not ready. Make sure there is a disc in the drive."
If I put a _formated_ disk in the CDRW drive the messages stop. A blank disk or
any disk in the DVD has no affect. This has happened with all the kernels I
have used so far. Note that the disk does not have to be mounted for the
messags to stop
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.16-1.2111 and prev
Steps to Reproduce:
Stop this message
This problem has 'gone away'. Hardware and kernel are exactly the same, but
after 1 or more updates, the messages have ceased. Have no idea why or even when.
A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5)
based upon a new upstream kernel release.
Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches
go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that
may address this problem.
This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO state.
Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.
If this bug has been fixed, but you are now experiencing a different
problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
(this is a mass-close to kernel bugs in NEEDINFO state)
As indicated previously there has been no update on the progress of this bug
therefore I am closing it as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Please re-open if the issue
still occurs for you and I will try to assist in its resolution. Thank you for
taking the time to report the initial bug.
