[Bug 867667] Re: can't open cd tray twice


[mrs_sheep], this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Please do not test the daily kernel folder, but the one all the way at the bottom. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  can't open cd tray twice

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The eject button on my laptop doesn't work but this is not that a big thing, i just kept using "eject". Since upgrading to Onieric I have trouble opening the tray. The first time always works fine, then i burn something on cd, it gets ejected through brasero (always does that when it finishes), i close the tray and can't open it anymore. Says "eject: unable to eject, last error: Inappropriate ioctl for device" 
  I have only been burning and not inserting CDs, but that several times. Restart fixes the issue, but that's not a practicable workaround.
  I suppose you can get the hardware details through tha attached information. Assigned it to the "eject" package but might be something "deeper" or even have to see with Brasero, will check that later.
