Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 430246
unable to mount media in optical drives
Last modified: 2008-02-08 22:15:55 EST
Description of problem:
-CD and DVD Drive won't mount any kind of media (audio/data, cd/dvd)
-gnome error promt: "unable to mount media, there is probably no media in drive"
-trying to mount in terminal neither sr1/sr0 nor cdrom/dvd are available,
terminal prompts that they doesn't exist
-both drives worked well in f7 and also do so in win2k
-installed f8 completely new, not by upgrading from f7
-if media is in drive while booting, it will be automounted but can not be
-changing symlinks had at least no effect, except deleting
70-persistent-cd.rules, reboot, change it like written in attachment and another
reboot, then drives both work well but just for one time, after the next reboot
all's like before
-the udev-updates which I installed in the last weeks also didn't take any effect
-model information about the drives also are written in attachment
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 292948 [details]
my actual 70-persistent-cd.rules file
output after a unsuccessful mount try?
can you mount by hand?
# isoinfo dev=/dev/cdrom
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
# ls /mnt
Created attachment 293169 [details]
So the last lines from dmesg output (after trying to mount) are in the attachement.
No I can't mount manually. When I try to mount manually it's displayed that
/dev/cdrom doesn't exist. Trying isoinfo nothing happens, terminal freezes and
even with ctrl+c it won't awake.
ls /mnt there's displayed "cdrom cdrw dvd dvdrw"
I also noticed a strange behaviour of my cd drive the last days. If I press
eject (after booting my PC), the drawer ejects and sometimes the drawer shuts
after a few seconds without any reason. I know it's not the kind of bug report
which is liked very much, but I just can tell all I know. If you need any
additional logfiles please let me know.
