View Full Version : [lubuntu] CD unmounts automatically after a few minutes

Hi everyone,

Recently, I have been having some problems with my CD. I put a disk in when I am starting up my system, and Ubuntu automagically mounts it like normal. However, after about 10 minutes, the disk magically unmounts itself and will not eject or remount.

This isn't a huge probelm for me since I rarely use CDs, but it would be good to fix. For reference, I have Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64. I tried looking around for information on this but couldn't find anything.

I hate to drag up old threads, but this is still going on. I did a bit of research; everything I found pointed to a kernel bug or a driver issue. None of the bugs reported matched my symptoms exactly though, so if anyone has any idea of what might be going on I would be happy to hear about it.

Open a terminal:

dmesg | tail -f

When it pops open, take note of the messages. My thinkpad t43p cd pops open randomly. I haven't researched it.
