Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 217864
Zip disks don't mount as expected
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:48:02 EST
Description of problem:
If I insert a zip disk (IDE connected) and double click on the zip disk icon
under computer no disk appears on the desktop, but nautilus opens up a view of
the filesystem root. The disk is acutally mounted if I look in /media/disk.
I've no idea if this is a hal or a gnome problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert zip disk
2. Double click zip drive icon under Computer
Nothing appears on the desktop. Nautilus opens up showing the filesystem root.
The disk is mounted under /media/disk, but you have to browse to find this.
A disk icon appears on the desktop (as for floppies) so you can easily browse to
it and eject it. If nautilus is supposed to open then it should start in
/media/disk (or whatever the mount point used is).

I can't reproduce this any more as I no longer have a machine with a zip drive.
