Description David Nielsen 2007-03-11 23:22:47 EDT
Description of problem:
When burning a dvd image of say Fedora 7 test 2 on an existing dvdrw you face a
problem where nautilus-cd-burner doesn't umount the disc before attempting to
erase it - despite getting feedback from the user that he does desire to use
that disc. This causes the entire burn process to fail pending an manual
unmount, though unmounting via nautilus will eject the disc so when you reinsert
it.. the same thing happens again. The only way to get around this is to open a
terminal and umount it manually.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert dvdrw
2. click .iso file and select "Write to disc"
3. When asked click the erase disc option
Actual results:
Failure to erase then burn disc

Expected results:
n-c-b should silently unmount the disc when the user specifically tells it to
erase the disc, then proceed.

There have been a lot of updates on this stuff since Test2 - is this still
Comment 2 David Nielsen 2007-05-09 17:20:29 EDT
I still have to manually umount cd/dvdrw medias before n-c-b will erase them.

nautilus-cd-burner can't blank cdrw in rawhide  20070518.

$cat ~/.xsession-errors

I also have this problem with F7 final
Comment 5 vfiend 2007-06-09 05:56:35 EDT
n-c-b should be calling gnome-mount to unmount the drive first or something..
Comment 6 Mykola Lyakhovych 2007-06-16 05:09:51 EDT
I have problem writing disks with gnomebaker. Is it the same problem?
** (gnomebaker:3279): WARNING **: devices_is_disk_inserted - ioctl failed

** (gnomebaker:3279): WARNING **: devices_eject_disk - Error opening device

** (gnomebaker:3279): WARNING **: devices_eject_disk - Error opening device

In /etc/mtab there is an entry with cyrrillic letters (I use Ukrainian):
/dev/scd0 /media/Мой\040диск iso9660 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=500 0 0

I use Fedora 7 with last updates.
Nautilus-cd-burner burns OK.
Comment 7 Mykola Lyakhovych 2007-06-16 05:18:30 EDT
Sorry, I meen n-c-b burnes OK if unmounted manually.
Comment 8 vfiend 2007-06-28 21:57:45 EDT
This seems to be working in F7 updated to GNOME 2.18.2 now
Comment 9 David Nielsen 2007-06-29 05:16:51 EDT
Still occures on Development
Comment 10 David Nielsen 2007-10-21 01:51:18 EDT
Okay, the situation has improved vastly, I'm no longer seeing this.
