org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.UnknownError when inserting CD or DVD (no automount)
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:49:13 EST
Description of problem:
When inserting a CD or DVD in my DVD-writer, gnome fails to mount it. It gives
an error message saying: "Cannot mount volume. Error
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Insert CD or DVD.
Steps to Reproduce:
No automount, but above error message. The DVD drive icon totally disappears
from nautilus, as if the drive did not exist.
CD or DVD mounted.
Before today, I've had no problems. As of today, I can't seem to mount anything
dynamic, including USB sticks and my camera. The only update that got installed
today is util-linux-2.13-0.46.fc6. Reverting to the previous util-linux did not
help. Trouble started after trying to burn a data DVD in K3B.

The problem went away yesterday (February 13th 2007) after running a package
update. The log contains my update history.

Trying to burn a DVD "hangs" all applications trying to do any I/O to that
particular IDE channel (channel holds DVD writer and one harddisk containing
/home). After some time, the harddisk's partitions are mounted read-only by the
kernel, triggering several journal errors. That likely triggered this issue.
I guess this particular issue is solved. I'll do some more research on what goes
wrong on that particular IDE channel and file it in a separate bug, if necessary.
