User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
When I try use any cd burner like xcdroast (or gtoaster), I get the following
error message.

Error trying to open /dev/scd0 exclusively ... retrying in 1 second.

I know that this means that other programs are using the Drive, but this is not
the case as no other program is using it. I ran fuser and I got:

[root@localhost root]# /sbin/fuser -av /dev/scd0
                     USER        PID ACCESS COMMAND

I using RedHat 9.0 and kernel 2.4.20-8


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run xcdroast
2.try to blank CD-RW

Actual Results:  Error trying to open /dev/scd0 exclusively ... retrying in 1
 is displayed

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
