I've looked in the forum but haven't find the answer to this specific question so here it goes.
Once I've used the CD once to let say, watch a DVD or burn something and I unmount/eject it (by right clicking on the CD on the desktop) and close the tray it won't reopen. I tried to push the CD eject button, nothing.. Right-click & Eject in Nautilus get the message : Enable to mount media. There is probably no media in the drive.
Even these shell command don't work :
Well, you get the picture.
$ sudo eject cdrom
$ sudo eject -t cdrom
$ sudo eject /dev/cdrom
$ sudo eject -t /dev/cdrom
$ sudo eject cdrom0
$ sudo eject -t cdrom0
$ sudo eject /media/cdrom
$ sudo eject /media/cdrom0
$ umount cdrom
umount: cdrom is not mounted (according to mtab)
$ umount /dev/cdrom
umount: /dev/cdrom is not mounted (according to mtab)
To open the drive, I have to put something (a staple) in the little hole to physically unlock the drive. Then I can put a CD and open/close the drive with the eject command. I can do wathever I want (watch a DVD, burn something, etc) and use the eject/unmount command. But I after that I wan't to put a new media I have to put the staple back in the hole. A reboot will also fix the problem, but I don't like this Windows like fix.
As you can imagine this is VERY annoying.
I'm using Hardy, the drive works find in Windows so I know it's the the drive itself.
Thanks a lot.
