Fedora :: CDs No Longer Mounting, But DVDs OK?

Jul 31, 2011

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:

Jul 28 14:07:21 khorlia kernel: [3792447.281593] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE

Fedora :: USB Drives No Longer Auto Mounting?

Sep 16, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Blank CDROM And DVDs No Longer Recognized

Mar 19, 2010

11.2, KDE4, GNU/Linux, latest updates

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Playback Commercial DVDs On External DVD (Wrong Region/mounting ?

Jan 19, 2011

Having issues getting my external dvd drive to play nice with 10.10. The usual horses have been beaten thoroughly.

1.) I've installed Medibuntu

2.) I've grabbed libdvdcss2, libdvdread, run the install script, etc., etc.

3.) I've attempted to check the region, with no avail.

When I try a regionset, it offers the following complaint:

ERROR: Could not open disc "(null)"! Please ensure there is a readable CD or DVD in the drive.

4.) The drive and disc(s) are all operational, as they work on different partitions and/or machines fine.

VLC/Totem will, briefly, open the menu for a given DVD. The menu video will briefly play, sputter, then die, which sounds like a region issue.

Any idea why the regionset isn't working? Perhaps it's not mounting right?

Debian Configuration :: Samba Share No Longer Auto-mounting In Wheezy

May 1, 2011

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)?

Debian Hardware :: Android Phone No Longer Mounting Since Wheezy -> Jessie

Aug 7, 2015

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.

OpenSUSE :: After Update To Ubuntu In VirtualBox Shared Folder No Longer Mounting

Oct 6, 2010

I recently applied a bunch of updates to my guest OS (Ubuntu) inside VirtualBox (NOTE: NOT updates to virtual box. Updates to the OS) and now on startup, I get the error:

"An error occurred while mounting /media/share. Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery"

I tried a fix which said to comment out the mounting in /etc/fstab and instead put it into rc.local, but this does not work.

Also, when I press "M" to try it manually and type:

mount.vboxsf -w mysharedfolder /media/share

I get the error:

mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

But before I updated Ubuntu, that shared folder worked perfectly!

Fedora :: Cannot Get DVDs To Play?

Jul 3, 2010

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?

Fedora :: Still Cannot Play DVDs (libdvdcss) / Sort It?

Nov 14, 2009

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?

Fedora Installation :: F12 - Creating Bootable CDs (DVDs)

Apr 23, 2010

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.

Fedora Installation :: 10 Install - Burned Dvds Would Not Boot

Jan 30, 2009

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.........

Fedora :: Copying CDs / DVDs (Video And Data) In Raw Mode

Dec 10, 2009

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.

Fedora :: How To Print Labels Directly On DVDs / CDs Using GIMP

May 30, 2010

Prerequisites :
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.

Fedora Hardware :: F15: DVDs Drive Not Working Correctly?

Jun 24, 2011

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Disk Drive Fails To Play DVDs

Feb 2, 2010

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Save Data On Bluray Disks Of 25 Gb ( Better Than Dvds, More Space )?

May 18, 2011

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.

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

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:

$mount -t cifs //$ /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?
