Description Daniel Qarras 2008-09-19 10:15:48 EDT
Description of problem:
On my Dell Precision WorkStation 380 with latest BIOS from Dell I'm trying to burn a DVD with nautilus. All works ok until during the finalization of the burn process I get an error from nautilus saying that burn failed. Then, after closing nautilus, the command eject does not work and even the eject button on the drive does not do anything.

Normal dmesg output from the system:

lspci -vvv output from the system:

I will attach the errors from dmesg after a failed burn attempt.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to burn a DVD with F9 on a Dell 380
2. See how it fails
3. Try to eject the DVD
Actual results:
Burn fail.

Expected results:
Burn completes ok.

Additional info:
I need to reboot to machine to get the disk out. However, it seems that the disk is (at least mostly) usable, e.g., I burnt a Fedora live DVD and although Nautilus complained, the disk was fully usable.

ICH7 hardware
Comment 3 Daniel Qarras 2008-12-14 10:04:29 EST
I have no access to the hardware any more so I can't help on this bug in any way.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 10:22:23 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
