I tried mounting a new CD, but nothing happened. I tried again, with a CD I'd used before with the same results. I tried a DVD in the same drive and it mounted OK, so it's not hardware. (I haven't had time until now to report this.) The box is running F 14 and is fully updated. Below is the results from /var/log/messages saved from June 28:

Does anyone else have this problem. Came just after recent update and is highly annoying. Plug usb device in and it is recognized on lsusb but not mounting and appearing in media folder. How do I solve this. Searched the forum but nothing useful
I know this problem was mentioned here before but because I could not find a straight forward solution anywhere I am reposting this here. So here goes.As of today, my Fedora 13 64-bit has ceased to auto-mount USB drives completely. I have made absolutely no changes to the system and I am completely baffled and frustrated by this sudden development. I desperately need this system to function properly as I use it for school and this really put a wrench in my works, especially since I have done nothing to cause this. I assume that one of the many recent updates that have been released must have done this, but I have absolutely no idea how to fix this. Why do Fedora developers release updates that cripple a perfectly functioning system is beyond me and crap like this really makes me consider switching back to Ubuntu.
I'm trying to make HAL mount my CD and DVD discs under a specific mountpoint (such as "/media/optical_disc", rather than "/media/<disc_label>". I understand from the Arch Linux Wiki it's possible for the media which gets recognized by it's uuid.
Weird, but suddenly just recently my system stopped 'seeing' any blank media. I have burned all sorts till now without problems, from K3B, Lemonrip, Handbrake, growisoft on the CLI, etc. Some errant update, perhaps?
I have done some digging ... added my user to cdrom, added an entry in fstab (K3B didn't like it so I deleted it), wodim -scanbus tell me I have '1,0,0 100) 'Optiarc ' 'BD ROM BC-5500S ' '1.03' Removable CD-ROM' ...
It can, however, read written Cds and DVDs without problems.
I upgraded my testing/Wheezy Inspiron N5010 to 2.6.38-2-amd64 recently (along with a bunch of other updates, of course) and now my Samba network share is no longer automatically mounting, I have to open a root terminal and do a "mount /mountpoint"; my relevant /etc/fstab entry:
I've tried over options, as well, but it isn't automatically mounting. Any suggestions (including where to file a bug report)?
Used to be, when I connected my phone and turned on USB Storage, it would automount, and I'd get a popup window asking me what I wanted to do (open and view files, or import photos with gthumb). I would just choose open and view files, move photos, music, etc. back and forth...
I would see the device listed in pcmanfm or thunar. Now, nothing happens. I do not get the popup, nor see the device in any file manager, etc. When I do fdisk -l, I do not see the phone listed, but when I do lsusb, I do see it.
Code: Select allBus 008 Device 067: ID 0482:0734 Kyocera Corp. Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
It's a Kyocera Hydro Elite, an android device, set for USB Mass Storage upon connection. The phone knows when it's been connected and gives me the option to turn on the mass storage, which used to trigger the popup on the computer, but the computer no longer responds.
I have thunar-volman and mtp-tools installed.
I don't seem to have any relevant entry in /etc/fstab. Not sure if I did before upgrading to jessie from wheezy or not... I don't believe so...don't think an upgrade would wipe anything from there.
Why I'm not getting access to the phone now? Or how I can mount it without knowing it's location from fdisk? I do not use gnome, but rather plain openbox.
I'm running Fedora 13 on my Toshiba laptop and I cant play DVDs. If I try to play a DVD using VLC player nothing seems to happen. A similar thing happens if I try to watch it in the "Dragon Player" that came with Fedora, except it doesn't play any videos at all (that's why I downloaded VLC). How can I get DVDs to play?
I have both Brasero and GnomeBaker and none of them can overburn CDs or DVDs, even they cannot burn data DVDs if the folder which I want to burn has an amount of files of 4.4 Gb (when the DVD size is 4.7 Gb!). How can I overburn CDs or DVDs?
I am looking for a way to batch convert from DVDs to avi - ideally choosing the resolution of my output device (for use on an Android/iPhone). I really want to do it automatically/via a script from the command line if possible.
I have some problems reading dvds using either xine or totem
Here's the output from running xine dvd://
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.6. (c) 2000-2007 The xine Team. libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access libdvdread: Attempting to use device /dev/mapper/vg_inga-lv_root mounted on / for CSS authentication
I know that this issue has been addressed on the forum before, but I haven't found any threads that solves my problem.
After being puzzled why every guide saying to install the 'libdvdcss' package wasn't working, the package simply not being found; it turns out that in the shift to RPM Fusion, that libdvdcss was the only package that Livna was still going to carry due to RPM Fusion's refusal - in case you didn't know.
I've installed all of the gstreamer plugins, xine-extra-libs and libdvdcss, all of the ones that are suggested. Yet I still cannot play a DVD with VLC. I was wandering if you could help me diagnose why?
I downloaded 64-bit fedora12 iso DVD image and created a DVD. When I tried to boot, the CD does not boot. I checked the documentation to see whether book.iso or any other file needs to be copied along with. My question is:
- What are the files I need to copy to a DVD for the DVD to boot up straight up from the DVD...? - If not, is there another way to get this fresh installation done.
I have 32-bit Fedora 11 installed in a machine, but need 64-Fedora to do some testing, before going with RH Linux.
I'm trying to install fedora 10 via dvd without a lot of success. i'm doing this on an old hp 8765c computer. it has a sansung sd-612 dvd-rom player. the dvd's i burned would not boot. so, i checked the dvd. sha1sum. check verify dvd when burned. check boot on system where the dvd burned. check dvd verify when bootedc check ok, lets check the dvd player. From i can see on the web, this player had issues about not playing dvds. some relate to driver issue when upgrading me to xp. and, some refer to updating firmware. lots of post about the dvd player not playing dvds. None with a succinct solution.
Well, if anyone has a solution for updating the firmware for a samsung sd-623 dvd player, it would be helpful. For now, installing from the internal dvd player isn't going to work for hardware reasons. Plan B lets try installing from the dvd using a network attached dvd server. sing the net install cd. use linux askmethod, use url to point to the dvd. the image in retreived, select all the defautl options, format the drive, does the package selection, does the package dependencies, but errors on the retriving packages. puts up the download retry message. then show message about not being able to retreive the authcong-gkt... rpm. just let the net install go. i get to the nic configuration, it errors out. probably network manager issue about trying to set a static ip address.........
I'm trying to find out which application will copy DVD discs (video and data) in raw mode. Something that works for DVDs like cdrdao works for CDs. I tried using cdrdao but it errors out because the DVD disc is too big for it. I tried looking at Brasero but I can't tell if it offers a raw option. I see that Brasero lets you copy a DVD to a RAW image, then burn the RAW image back to a DVD-R. If Brasero uses RAW mode to do a direct copy, this would essentially do the same thing, but I can't tell if that is what it does. But, I think this will work.
Prerequisites : The GIMP. Make sure you have the "Gutenprint Printer Drivers Package" and "GIMP plugin for gutenprint" installed (add/remove software, search for gutenprint). A printer that uses a tray loading mechanism for printing disc media.
Procedure : Open/create the image with the GIMP. I find that an image size of 1394 x 1394 is ideal for normal size discs. To create a working area in the image, first create a white circle. To do this, use the circle selection tool and position the cursor at position 0,0 (top left). Then, while holding the shift key down, hold left click and drag the cursor to the bottom right position, which should be 1394,1394. Fill the selection with white colour. Depending on the hub size of your disc you need to also cut out an area in the centre of the white circle approximately 22 mm in diameter. Position the circle selection cursor 11mm above the centre of the image, and 11mm to the left of the centre of the image. Then hold Shift down, hold left click and drag the cursor until the selected area is 22mm x 22mm. Then cut the selection. Now create a new layer above the white circle and create your image, keeping inside the white circle and outside the centre "hole".
If you are using non full face discs, make the centre "hole" bigger accordingly. Create 2 new background layers, one black and one white. The black is so you can preview the image with the correct shape, and the white one is for use when exporting the final finished image for printing. Remember to make the white layer above the black layer, or make the black layer invisible when exporting the image. I have attached a template for your immediate use. Once your image is finished, you should have a white square image, with your graphics arranged within a circle. White is not printed, so you don't need transparency around the edges. Don't put graphics too close to the edges of the circle or you will get ink on the plastic which never dries. (at least not until you have smeared it on your fabulous artwork ! ) Save the file as the default GIMP xcf format to preserve the layers then export it to png.
To print the image onto the disc. With the image open in the GIMP, In File > Page Setup set the paper size to CD - 5 inch and apply. Then go to File > Print with Gutenprint. Use the option to set up printer and find your make and model. Once you have the correct printer selected, lots of extra options become available.
My Printer settings are: Print Quality - Best Media Type - Photo paper Media Source - Print to CD CD hub size - Normal Ink Set - Epson Standard inks Resolution - 720 dpi Ink Type - 6 color photo Page Size - CD - 5 inch (All the other settings are left as default)
On the Output tab there are more options for adjusting the print quality. Just click "Adjust Output". If you have adjusted the output, close that window then click "Print and Save Settings", otherwise just click "Print and Save Settings". It should fire up straight away. These settings are based on my Epson R200, so you may have to tweak them for your printer model.
I recently installed fedora and enjoying learning what it can do. One of the things that I wanted to do was play DVDs. I installed vlc and the libvdreader package but am unable to play DVDs. I even used "movie player", and the program said, fedora does not have the right codecs to play the DVD. Does anybody know what I need to do? And what codecs that I need to download if any?
My DVD-ROM drive seems to have issues under Fedora 15.This is the "normal" spin with GNOME3, all updates have been installed.First off, the drive seems to get "stuck" will not eject any media once inserted.Occaisionally, if I just keep pressing the eject button, the media tray will jump out, but then will immediately pull itself back in without any interaction from me.Second issue: video DVDs do not mount. It does not seem to matter if libdvdcss is installed or not. When a DVD video disc is inserted, the DVD drive completely disappears from Nautilus' Computer window. Once I eject the DVD (after pressing eject 50 times) the drive comes back to the Computer window.The drive is a Plextor DVD-RW PX-755SA connected via SATAI have tried using either regular IDE or AHCI configuration in the BIOS for it, no change either way.The drive works fine under Ubuntu and OpenSUSE, but I like F15 better and would like to get this fixed.
I have a Fujitsu Lifebook A3130, and I have semi-recently installed Fedora 11. I am still a fairly new linux user, and would like to continue to use this great open source software, but it seems my DVD drive fails to play DVD's. The specs are here, but unfortunately they don't give much detail as to the model number of the drive in question. I insert the disk, and it pops up with the following dialogue:
You have just inserted a Video DVD. Choose what application to launch. Select how to open "disk name" and weather to perform this action in the future for other media of type "video DVD". It then suggests opening the disk in "Movie Player", and provides a check box for "Always perform this action". I hit OK, and it seems to try to open Movie Player, but then comes up with this error:
An error occurred Could not read from resource. Then it provides an "OK" button. When I click the button it goes back to Movie Player, and proceeds to not show any video.
I just tried to open the disk inside of Movie Player, via the "Movie" menu, then clicking "play disk 'disk name'", but once again I get an error: Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disk. Please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to play this media. And again it provides an OK button, which diverts back to the main Movie Player window.
I installed Fedora 12 recently. The Open multimedia installed by default does not play DVDs. It stops with the error " Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disc. "
I want to buy another laptop. I want to use FC on it. I need bluray because I want to save data on bluray disks of 25 gb (better than dvds, more space). I have one option, a fujitsu that has bluray writer, big display (I have another one, other model, same size and it's working fine with Fc14, only some small issues).
Second option is a Dell (I had an older dell inspiron before, which worked fine with FC), more expensive, lacking a writer, but it can read bluray. If I take this, I would have to also buy an external bluray writer. Has nice specs, but I am really worried about the graphic card, whether I can make it work with Fc14. I saw some people having problems with linux and this graphic card, while searching on google.
Here's specs for both (sorry for the language from website, but I found in English other specs than these, I guess the specs can be read easily): Dell XPS L702x and FUJITSU Lifebook NH570 I am inclining more towards the Fujitsu, but haven't decided yet.
Just the last day or so, I've noticed a long pause when I boot my laptop, with lots of disk activity. dmesg says:
Why would there be a 15-second pause (during which the disk is slammed) between mounting root and mounting swap? During this time I see nothing but a blank purple screen, there are no cycling dots or text scroll. Is this normal and I'm just freaking out over nothing because there's no indicator of progress? GRUB default boot options: quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1920x1200-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap vt.handoff=7
I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:
Code: $mount -t cifs //192.168.1.194/Admin$ /mnt/Anita-comp password: (I have no password so I left it blank) Mount error (13): Permission Denied I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.
I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?
I did: Code: yum remove sendmail and the next thing I know is that yum and rpm are no longer available. I still have wget and some C compilers, so, before I reinstall, does anybody know if it is possible to install rpm and/or yum in this situation? Fedora 11
I have Fedora 8 and we just switched over from a Windows "File Server" to Windows Server 2008 (10.1.1.17). I updated my fstab file and now when I go onto the Windows folders, I can list and read files, even save them, but new files are always read only.
fstab file (some, without the asterisks): //10.1.1.17/USERS/Jeff/fs /home/mriuser/Desktop/fs cifs rw,username=jsadino,password=**** 0 0
I've tried ntfs-3g, auto, ntfs, smb, some umask combinations, changing ownerships, changing permissions, everything I could think of, but still can't modify new files.
