Default Problems ejecting cd/dvd media on F9

Hi,

this is weird: when I try to eject a data cd the tray closes
automatically as soon as it opens, which makes removing the media
somewhat of a challenge. It happens either if manually eject the media
(directly on the cd-rom drive) or if I right click the drive icon and
choose "eject".

Anyone knows how to configure this behavior?

Regards,

Andre

That is a bug, Andre. See:

if it happens when you press button on front of drive,
it may not be a software problem.

have you used a paper clip to eject tray lately?

maybe you have cause a miss alignment of cam gear,
and why button should be used to close tray.

possible 'tray extended' switch that stops motor
has gone bad.

I've seen the described fault when:

* right-clicking on a drive icon, and picking eject
* when pressing the eject button on the drive

i.e. The same conditions as the original poster.

It would seem that the system doesn't let go of the device, and tries to
reload it straight away.

My drive is quite new, not worn out, and behaves perfectly if Fedora 9
isn't involved.

and i should have asked him what happens if his system is brought up
from a 'cold' boot, to clear drive and then stopped in bios setup or
system boot prompt and he tries to use drive eject button.

do not remember of rom drive lockup in f9, but with f8 and a '3 finger'
reboot causes drive to not be recognized. possible a bug that was
carried into f9.

anyway, f8 and f9 need a good shutdown that will reset all hardware.

Default Problems ejecting cd/dvd media on F9

Hi;
I have an sata dvd/rw that does the same thing.
It opens and then closes.

The ide/pata one works normally on the same system.

Me too.

It is very annoying, especially when I burn CD/DVD's.

My burn script does an eject, and now after the recent
upgrade it reloads and mounts the disk.

I have to catch the tray with the left hand and
hold it while I remove the disk with the right hand.

It hasn't broken the drive - yet :-)

In my case, the trick to eject the media is as follows:

1. press the eject button in the tray and wait a few seconds;

2. press again the same button.

I must say Paul was right: I rebooted yesterday to Windows XP (it's a
dual-boot system) and cd-rom drive worked as it should. It's a
software issue indeed, probably bug #451320.

Well, I hope it get fixed soon, as it is my cd-rom is almost useless on Linux =(

Thks to all that replied.

Regards,

Andre
