Description Knut-Håvard Aksnes 2007-11-21 15:28:47 EST
Description of problem:

After upgrade from fedora 7 to fedora 8 My DVD writer: An AOpen DVD RW ISU8424E
have stopped working as CD player and as CD or DVD burner. K3B don't see the
burner at all. Totem and other cd players fails to open audio cds. 
Totem gives the following messages:
Cannot eject volume
Cannot eject the volume /boot

vlc gives th followin message:
Unable to open 'cddax:///dev/sr0'

Totem could not play this media (Audio CD) although a plugin is present to
handle it.
You might want to check that a disc is present in the drive and that it is
correctly configured.

I attach a lshw listing

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


How reproducible:
Always happens to me.

Expected results:

Additional info:

The drive still works as cdrom and for reading content of dvds.
In adition to the fedora repositories I have livna and planetccrma installed
with nearly full installations from all repositories. Exceptions only made for
packages related to hardware I don't have, and some conflicting packages.

The problems are probably rights related as the cd player works for root.
K3B is also capable of reaching the burner when invoked as root. (I haven't
tried burning yet)

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few weeks if there is no additional information lodged.

The problem went away as did some similar problems related to sound, when  I
after  a hint somewhere on the net removed a cache or config file used  by
either the hardware detection or by udev. It was full of garbage after the
fedora 8 installation. Unfortunately I can't remember neither a reference to the
hint from nor the exact file involved.
