Ubuntu :: How To Eject Ipod With Kubuntu (not Unmount)

Feb 9, 2011

I have an ipod shuffle that will only charge if I eject it. This is easy to do with Ubuntu as I only have to right click on the ipod icon and select "eject." If I select unmount instead, the ipod does not charge. I am now trying out kde 4.6 with Kubuntu, but cannot see a way to eject. There is an option to safely remove the ipod, but this does not correspond to the eject option in Ubuntu as the ipod does not subsequently charge.

Ubuntu :: How To Auto Eject A CD

Apr 14, 2011

I'm using a Three network broadband dongle for my net access at the moment. That's a ZTE MF-112.

It is obviously engineered for Windows and the procedure it goes through on a Windows box is to show up as a CD drive initially which then autoruns and checks for the presence of the drivers and installer software. Only after it has detected all that does it 'eject' the CD and bring the actual 3G device online.

This leads to a slight amount of... irritation. I tend to have a terminal window open anyway so typing /dev/cdrom1 eject whenever I put the dongle in is no particular hardship, bu there must be some way to automate this.

The device turns up on /dev/cdrom1 and the 'disc' has the label '3 Connect'.

how to auto eject this thing whenever it shows up?

Ubuntu :: Cd Wont Display After 'wine Eject'

May 1, 2010

I'm installing a program in WINE that requires more than 1 CD. I used wine eject to unmount the first one, and now ubuntu wont read the second one. No errors or anything, the drive just spins for a bit, then stops, and then the icon for the second cd doesn't appear, and I still have this wonderful message "Please insert disk number 2".

Ubuntu / Apple :: Unreadable - Eject It Gets Stuck

Jun 25, 2010

i recently got a hold of a macbook 3.1, installed ubuntu 10.04 on it(Single boot). When i got the macbook the OSX that was installed on it had some serious issues, so without the OSX restore disk i had nothing so i hopped on my friends macbook pro and dled Ubuntu burnt it to a disk and installed it flawlessly on my macbook 3.1. During that installation i did remove the old OSX partitions completely and created a new one for ubuntu(the whole HD). later i was able to find a OSX Leopard backup on the interweb so on my pc i downloaded tit and burnt it to a dvd. When i try to boot from startup i just get a blinking cursor it stayed like that all while i took a 2 hour nap. Note that from within ubuntu i could see all the files on the disk so thats issue number one

Number 2 is that im trying to burn a dvd from a iso in ubuntu and when ever i insert a blank disk it says its unreadable and when i try to eject it it gets stuck. i have to hold the mouse button while it reboots in order to get it out. Whats causing this? how do i fix these issues. Eventually i want to startover and put mac osx on there (for steam) and ubuntu for primary use.

Ubuntu :: Brasero Refuses To Eject Disk?

Aug 20, 2010

I am using Brasero 2.30.2 on Ubuntu 10.04. The problem is that whenever I use Brasero to burn any CD/DVD, it burns it but refuses to eject, although I always select the option to eject disk after burning. Instead, it displays a message saying something like "Please eject the disk manually to finish the burning process".

Hardware :: Method To Eject A CD/DVD?

Nov 4, 2010

I've been through Google looking for a method of ejecting an unrecognizable CD/DVD from a rewriter when the device's light is flashing. This happens more often than I like and it's annoying since the only reliable method I've found is to reboot.

If I insert a bad CD/DVD into the drive, the rewriter may or may not ever stop trying to read it. KDE gives me these bad CD/DVDs because it has the nasty habit of logging me off when it gets too busy doing who knows what (OK, so maybe I shouldn't be running KDE until v4.6, but that's another issue) leaving a partially burned disk in the drive and the light continuing to flash.

The problem is, the device thinks it's busy even though it's not really doing anything. I've tried umpteen variations on eject without success, turning off the lock in /proc, etc..

The old paperclip in the hole trick doesn't always work either. The disk tray may come out, but the device light still flashes. The device can't be used again until a reboot.

Ubuntu :: Disable Auto Eject When Live CD Shutdown

Aug 27, 2010

Is there some file I can alter on the Live CD image that will make Ubuntu not automatically eject the drive tray when I shut down from a live CD session?


/etc/rc0.d/S89casper is a link though, so I just edited the file it points to (/etc/init.d/casper) -- seems to be working. I merge a modified "casper" at every boot, next time I build a Remastersys, I'll try to make it permanent.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Eject Disc Or Get IMac Running?

Dec 26, 2010

I started by running ubuntu 10.10 live CD and I did an install on my iMac. I went the route of just deleting all the data off of the iMac (I have a time capsule backup) and ran the install. Well when i booted the computer back up then Ubuntu did not come up as expected.After a few trial and errors I decided to just reinstall the Mac OS. I put the wrong disc in (it was an upgrade disk and not the disk that came with the iMac) so I wanted to eject it. That was a no go. Keep in mind i was using LOGITECH KEYBOARD and not the wireless keyboard that came with it. So when my computer boots up now all I get is the grey screen. After a while it tried to boot up Ubuntu. The screen has a flashing cursor, and then it disappears and the screen stays black.

I can get the computer to the point where if I hold the option key (alt on my logitech keyboard) then the option to boot to windows or the CD comes up. I can't boot to either.I've tried the command (windows key on the logitech keyboard) ctrl+o+f start up keys to try and get the command prompt up and that didn't work eitherI've tried a few other things and they didn't work. I'm not even sure my wireless keyboard works on bootup. I've tried to hold down the option key for the dual boot selection screen and it doesn't pop up, but it pops up when I use the logitech keyboard.Oh someone PLEASE help me. I have an Intel core iMac which was bough with the last year I believe. I would like to get the disc out or at least get Ubuntu up and I can eject the disk from the Ubuntu OS.

Debian :: CD Eject From Shell Script?

Sep 23, 2010

I'm trying to create a boot cd that will auto repair a corrupt lilo mbr. I've got a mini linux shell booting off a cd no problem The cd then runs a shell script that is in the root of the cd The shell script does the following:

mounts some partitions
copys the lilo.conf file to /etc
run lilo command


My problem is that the eject command always returns the following error

eject: tried to use '/media/cdrom/ as device name but it is no block device
umount: /mnt/cdrom: device is busy
umount: /mnt/cdrom: device is busy
eject: umount of 'mnt/cdrom' failed

I think that its not working because the shell script is actually on the cd, i've tried copying a 2nd shell script to / and running that, but I get the same error. I've also tried moving the current dir to / and running the eject command but that did not work either.

Heres my shell scripts
setterm -background blue

OpenSUSE :: Device Notifier Eject Button Gone?

Feb 3, 2010

I did a fresh install of 11.2 (giving OpenSUSE a try after being on Ubuntu for years). I then enabled the community and packman repos. Now, I have noticed that the eject button that normally appears on the Device Notifier plasmoid is gone. I can still click on where that button should be and the device (CD in this case) will still eject. It's just that the button is "invisible."

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Eject CD Drive

Feb 24, 2010

The only way I can eject a cd from either of my drivers is to restart my pc. The buttons don't work and neither does the eject control withing the device widget in my panel. It says the device is in use even though I am done with it. This is stupid. Everything else in this operating system is beautiful and works great (except the version of Audacity had to be replaced with one that is actually usable.) Other than that everything is great , way better than windows - but I can't do something as SIMPLE as eject a cd??? How stupid is that?? I am actually angry - being angry at a computer is something that happens when using windows computers - should not happen whilst using OpenSuse.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cannot Eject The Tray To Remove The DVD

Jun 23, 2010

It happens regardless of which DVD I put in the tray.

Initially, openSUSE recognizes that the DVD is, in fact, there. I go to any one media player, play the DVD, and exit when I'm done.

And then the DVD is gone. As far as openSUSE is concerned, anyway. I cannot eject the tray to remove the DVD, which prompts a total reboot.

Is there any way to dispose of this problem?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Set K3b To Eject Disk After Ripping?

Apr 7, 2011

I have started to use K3b for ripping my CDs to flac files in order to put them on a NAS but have a few niggles with how it works.

I used to use Grip and in many ways preferred the interface and flexibility but had to change because I didn't know how to increase the number of attempts made by cdparanoia to rip difficult tracks and Grip fell down on one particular brand new CD opera set.

After posting queries here Asunder was suggested, among others and although (I understand,) Asunder also rips using cdparanoia, it succeeded on a CD where Grip failed. It also had a reasonable interface and it was easy to adjust tagging before ripping. Unfortunately Asunder has recently failed on another CD so I decided to try K3b.

K3b allows me to adjust the number of retries and this has been sufficient to enable me to overcome the most recalcitrant CDs. Great, but in many other respects K3b is a pain to use. I cannot find how to get it to eject the CD once ripping has been completed. Even after the CD has been ejected the track tags remain in the display until a new CD is loaded and the tagging interface is limited.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Impossible To Eject Any Music CD Or DVD

May 24, 2011

Apart from KsCD and CD Player, (both of which are pretty good, but very basic), I have found it impossible to eject any music CD or DVD on any of the following:

Media Kaffeine
MPlayer and

there does not seem to be any button, command or whatever to get the CD or DVD out of the drive, so now find that only way, is to stop player and then to open CD Player and use the eject button there.

Software :: CD Icon Doesn't Disappear On Eject

Apr 4, 2011

This error appears in different distributions (since I tried some more distributions last time I can't say which exactly). My actual Distribution is archlinux and it has the error: If I press the eject-button the icon remains on the desktop...

The icon for audio discs disappears correctly. The Icon for Video-DVDs doesn't disappear. If I click on a "remaing" Icon the Contents of the Disc is shown with nautilus - I can even navigate in the directory-tree.

Debian Multimedia :: When Telling KDE V4.8.4 To Eject Disc It Closes Again

OpenSUSE :: Press The Right Mouse Button For More Options (such As Mount Or Eject)

Mar 29, 2011

openSuse 11.4 64bit fresh install, KDE 4.6.0. Now I am probably being obtuse, but If I click on the wonderfully named "My Computer" I get, among other things, a display of Disk Information; hard drive partitions and any DVDs or CDs. If I let my mouse cursor alight on any of these, I get a message "Press the right mouse button for more options (such as Mount or Eject)" But if I press the right mouse button, I don't get those options; I get a message "Open in new window, Open in new tab, Open with ..., Create file project with K3b, and Compress ...".
