[Bug 890592] Re: CD drive eject button does not work


Hello. I can also confirm this on ubuntu 13.10.

When I put in a dvd (The Avengers for example) it is mounted as - /media/ukbeast/MARVELS_THE_AVENGERS
when I press eject on my ata-Slimtype_DVD_A_DS8A8SH_3208583_632219412703 dvd ejects but the dvd is still mounted as 

I find it annoying because I use leawo bluray player for my dvds using
wine beacuse the sound seems better than VLC and I have to close and
open the software to unmount the dvd in nautilus, so that wine can pass
the mount information to leawo.

  CD drive eject button does not work

Status in Nautilus:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “udev” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

  On my laptop, pressing the hardware "eject" button on the DVD drive
  will pop out the disc, but it will still be treated as mounted by
  Nautilus. If I then put in another disc, it will still think that the
  files from the previous disc are there, as though it had not been
  ejected. This produces an error when I try to manipulate those files.

  I can't access the files from the new disc until I eject the old one
  using the button on Nautilus.


  1. Put a CD or DVD in the drive, close it, and let Nautilus mount it.
  2. Eject it using the hardware eject key.
  3. Put in a new CD or DVD.


  Nautilus will know when I ejected a disc.
