Description Baris Cicek 2010-04-21 13:30:00 UTC
Description of problem:
When I put a blank media inside the dvd drive, it does not recognise the media. 

I was suspicious that this was due to broken drive or media problem, which is what I'm experiencing on my desktop which is running on Fedora 13, but now I'm sure it's kernel problem as I upgraded my laptop to Fedora 13 from Fedora 11 and drive that is working about an hour ago, now can't see blank media. 

Since this make dvd drive useless for writing, I set severity as high.

Also I noted that it detects dvd-rw media. Though on my desktop burned image couldn't pass fedora install integrity test. It might be related to this same bug.

Here's the dmesg output (various of this same error):
Info fld=0x0
sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: Logical block address out of range
sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 01 00
end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 0

And here's the hal info of the drive:

Comment 1 Honza Horak 2011-02-21 09:02:16 UTC
It can be the same problem as bug #643999, which is fixed in Fedora 14 and Rawhide at the moment, but not in Fedora 13 yet.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 15:02:23 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '13'.

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 13'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 13 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 3 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 15:46:42 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 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.
