Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206732
External DVD reader/writer not showing discs on desktop
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:46:36 EST
Description of problem:
With two different external USB DVD burners, putting a disc (blank or written)
into the drive does not cause it to be shown on the desktop. According to John
Lockhart, this works as intended in FC4. Also according to him, it's possible
more than just the disc not showing, but rather some under-the-cover problems as
well. I'm attaching a few relevant logs that jwl will hopefully give extra
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5, FC6test, rawhide (as of a few days ago)

Attachments are the output of:
Along with the relevant part of /var/log/messages that lists the DVD device.
System is an AMD x86_64 box running FC6-rawhide (kernel 2.6.17-1.2630.fc6).
I'm seeing the same problem on an i686 FC5. Downgrading hal to 0.5.7-3 fixes
it. So this is a regression somewhere before 0.5.7.1-2.
Should be fixed in 0.5.8.1-2 otherwise please reopen.
