Description Mephisto 2007-02-19 18:28:06 UTC
Description of problem:
Today i bought a new sata dvd-rom player (Asus DVD-E616A3T), and HAL does not
mount DVD disks inserted into the drive. It works fine with CD's, and both CD
and DVD work with my DVD-writer. The dvdwriter is /dev/scd0 (even though it's an
IDE drive, the IDE interface on this motherboard is part of the sata
controller), and the new dvd-rom is /dev/scd1. I can mount the disks manually
(by using the mount command with no special options) and use them with no
problems. It doesn't matter if the disk is writable or not. Hal-device-manager
shows a Volume when a dvd is inserted.

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

How reproducible:
Always, with this drive anyway...

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect a sata dvd drive (tested with Asus DVD-E616A3T)
2. Insert a dvd
Actual results:
The dvd is not auto-mounted.

Expected results:
The disk should have been mounted.

Today i got me a new dvd writer as well (sata), and the new drive mounts dvd's
automatically, like my old one. The dvd-rom is now /dev/scd0 and the new writer
is /dev/scd1. It hasn't changed anything in the dvd-rom's behavior. Dunno if
this might help tracking down the bug, but i thought i'd post it anyway. If you
need more info (like logs or output from commands), let me know.

I bought a new motherboard (the old one was too unstable and kept crashing
randomly), but i still have the same problem. Hal seems to detect a device
called 'Volume', but doesn't seem to make any attempt to mount it. Also, the
other drive no longer mounts either, and sometimes gives me the error:
"Permission denied: Not in active session". It also often does not detect a
volume at all, even though it clearly sees the disk getting inserted, since
hal-device-manager shows this in console:

PropertyModified, device=/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_model_DVDRW_SH_16A7S
  key=storage.removable.media_available, rem=0, add=0

PropertyModified, device=/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_model_DVDRW_SH_16A7S
  key=storage.removable.media_available, rem=0, add=0

I'm not doing anything with multiple users or user switching, and the system was
just freshly booted.

Is this still happening?

Comment 4 Mephisto 2007-04-03 09:19:19 UTC
Nope, both drives are mounted correctly now on a fully uptodate rawhide.
Thanks for fixing it :)

Great, thanks, I'm closing this bug then.
