Description Tim Reilly 2006-09-15 18:00:02 EDT
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
explaination for.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5, FC6test, rawhide (as of a few days ago)

Attachments are the output of:
  lsusb -vvv
  dmesg
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).
Comment 5 Garrick Staples 2006-09-19 02:55:45 EDT
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.
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2006-09-27 16:14:21 EDT
Should be fixed in 0.5.8.1-2 otherwise please reopen.
