Description Simon Andrews 2006-11-30 14:27:27 UTC
Description of problem:
Some CDs, apparently those using a UDF filesystem won't mount automatically. 
ISO9660 CDs work as expected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert UDF format CD
Actual results:
Nothing is mounted.

Expected results:
CD is mounted under /media and appears on desktop.

Additional info:
There's nothing fundamentally broken about mounting since it is possible to
manually mount the failed CDs and they can be read OK.  It's only the
automounting which is broken.

Looking through bugzilla it's possible that this is related to bug#212640 which
describes a similar problem when mounting DVDs.

I've tried this on two separate machines running fully updated FC6, with
different CDR or CDRW drives and the effect is the same on both.

I'll attach the output from lshal --monitor following the insertion and ejecting
of an ISO9660 and a UDF CD.  The obvious difference is that the failed UDF CD
shows storage.removable.media_available = false whereas this shows as true for

Can you attach 1) output of lshal; 2) output of "/lib/udev/vol_id /dev/hdc" (as
root) where /dev/hdc is your optical drive. Thanks.

Output of lshal

In addition to the device whose details I've attached here I've got a second
machine which also does this, but currently have no easy way to transfer files
off it.  Its optical device is a SAMSUNG_CD_R/RW_SW_408B and it exhibits the
same behaviour.  If it would be helpful I can find a way to get the lshal
output from that drive attached too.

I also checked this output on my other machine and it's the same on both.
