Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 457355
External devices listed twice in Nautilus, not mountable
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:33:03 EST
Description of problem:
Any external device appears twice in Places/Computer; neither icon can be used
to mount the device.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to GNOME
2. Plug in an external hard drive / USB thumb drive
Each device shows up as two icons. Also, a dialog box appears, once for each
unique device, with the following message:
Unable to mount KINGSTON
DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.NotFound: The given volume was
After the initial dialog box is closed, double-clicking on one of the icon
silently fails; double-clicking on the other icon reproduces the dialog box, but
now the volume label (KINGSTON) is replaced by 'location'
Also reported on Ubuntu's Intrepid Ibex alpha, a few days ago:
Maintainer indicated that he'd be reporting it upstream, but it does not look
like it's been reported

Nautilus now mounts hard drives, though the duplicate listing still occurs. When
ripping audio CDs using sound-juicer, however, only one disc can be ripped. The
second disc can be read, but ripping / playing fails. The sound-juicer interface
stops refreshing, and on the terminal the following is printed:
** (sound-juicer:4078): WARNING **: Could not lock drive: Extracting audio from CD
Error trying to open /dev/sg0 exclusively (Permission denied): retrying in 1 second.
(repeated several times, then moving on to /dev/sga which does not even exists,
The only recourse is to restart haldaemon. Killing all gvfsd-related processes
does not help. Problem occurs regardless of whether the first CD was ejected
from Nautilus or from sound-juicer
I think this is already fixed in upstream gvfs.
Should be fixed in rawhide. Reopen if you still see it.
