    Location already mounted

    Hello,
    Every time I insert a new blank DVD in my drive, I get a pop-up window that alerts me that this "Location is already mounted".
    Then, I have to click "OK" to close this window and continue working with the DVD.
    It only happens if I insert a blank DVD. I don't see that pop-up on CD's or DVD movies.
    And this is new from Quantal.
    Can it be corrected?
    Thanks.

    i'm not very sure, but check /etc/fstab and comment out the dvd reader line.
    That hardware might be mounted "on demand" when inserting a support ( mountall job), no need to have it mounted in other cases.
    ( check also your bios in case of special setting about it)

    I am finding this too.

    1st on a newly acquired desktop running QQ 64 bit and since upgrading to QQ 32 bit on my Toshiba laptop it is doing the same - previously it had stopped recognising the DVD drive in the Startup Disc Creator.

    I want to Ubuntuize a new Asus laptop that currently has Win7 on it (ptooey) but it won't boot from a dongle so I need a startup disc to install Ubuntu.

    Neither of the other machines can burn a disc for me. CD/DVD Creator will work but the disc won't boot.

    This is the output of /etc/fstab without a blank DVD in any of my drives. I have two drives, a CD/DVD RW and a CD/DVD player.
    /dev/sda1: UUID="195081b3-dbff-4d34-8fd6-4d112e50b844" TYPE="ext4"
    /dev/sda5: UUID="83327799-dd5a-4ec0-84d2-7917f9206552" TYPE="swap"
    /dev/sdb1: LABEL="Iomega HDD" UUID="D27431CF7431B6D7" TYPE="ntfs"
    And this is the output of /etc/fstab after I have inserted a blank DVD in one of the drives.
    /dev/sda1: UUID="195081b3-dbff-4d34-8fd6-4d112e50b844" TYPE="ext4"
    /dev/sda5: UUID="83327799-dd5a-4ec0-84d2-7917f9206552" TYPE="swap"
    /dev/sdb1: LABEL="Iomega HDD" UUID="D27431CF7431B6D7" TYPE="ntfs"
    I have only one partition in my HD, native Ubuntu and "Iomega HDD" is my external HD.

    I don't think you need a start-up disc to install ubuntu, once you have burnt the new system onto a DVD now, or dongle.
    Have you activated the dongle boot in BIOS?
