Ubuntu :: K3B Saying Cannot Unmount The CD?

Sep 5, 2010

I have gone senile but what happened to the Unmount option when I right click on a Desktop CD icon in 10.04? I only wanted to make an ISO image and K3B says it cannot unmount the CD. I don't want to Eject it. I have a clever idea! I will add Mount Manager to the panel. Mount Manager should be called Eject Manager because that is all it does!! Even Krusader seems to have lost its ability to unmount a device.

Ubuntu :: Unmount Creative Zen Via Terminal

I want to unmount my creative zen music player via the terminal so I don't have to right-click the symbol and click unmount.

It is not mounted under /media like my ipod so I don't know how.

When I select it in nautilus the path is listed as gphoto2://[usb:002,004]/

Ubuntu :: Cannot Unmount / Error Saying It's In Use By Another Application?

Ubuntu :: Script For Unmount Devices?

Sep 8, 2010

basic script on unmounting devices, as that option was removed in Ubuntu Lucid?I'm aware I can possibly recompile the nautilus source and all that, but I think a much easier method would be to just add a script for such. Something basic, like this, but that includes ALL devices that can be unmounted (such as flash drives, external hard drive, and sd/xd cards), not just disc drives. Pretty much what the right click 'Unmount' option in nautilus used to be like:

sudo umount /dev/sr0

Ubuntu :: Permanently Unmount A Drive?

Jul 7, 2011

I'm running both Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows XP Home Edition. I have my hard drive partitioned with 90 GB for Windows and 60 GB for Ubuntu. Here's the problem: When I booted up Ubuntu for the first time, the Windows file system appeared as a second HDD. My dad told me that I need to make it so that drive doesn't appear or be read only or else he will be uninstalling Ubuntu because of the risk that some program will write to the Windows file system. I personally am not worried about that happening, but he clearly is. Remember, I'm brand new to Linux so please make things simple for me to under stand!

Ubuntu :: Cannot Unmount USB Flash Drive

Sep 5, 2009

I've recently purchased a 4gb "ultra speed" flash drive. It reads and writes just fine on both my laptop and desktop. Both of which are running Ubuntu 9.04. However, when I go to unmount the drive from my desktop system, the drive icon on the desktop disappears, but it remains in the "media - File Browser".

There is one change in the file browser though. When I unmount the drive, the "eject" symbol disappears from next to the drive in the "media - File Browser" but the drive icon itself remains. The light never extinguishes on the USB drive, and when I click on the icon that remains in the File Browser, the USB drive mounts itself again and reappears on my desktop and the eject symbol reappears in the File Browser.This drive unmounts just fine from my laptop.

Ubuntu Servers :: Automatic Unmount On Reboot?

Apr 1, 2010

I have a problem while rebooting my 9.10 server when I have SAN partition mounted. The message is something about the swap that can not be cleaned during the process. All works if I unmount the partitions before shutting down or rebooting.So I though to create a bash script that unmounts the parts during runlevel 0 and 6.I've created a simple script like this in /etc/init.d:

umount /mnt/xxx

Ubuntu :: Using BASH Script To Unmount A Volume?

Jun 3, 2010

As part of a script for imaging floppy disks on a Mac, I am trying to unmount the volume located at /dev/disk1

In my script I put--
echo "This should unmount the external floppy drive."
sudo umount /dev/disk1

But I get an error--
umount: /dev/disk1
: not currently mounted

I also tried excluding the "sudo" with the same result. Any ideas where the " is coming from or what else might be the problem?

sudo umount /dev/disk1 works when I use it in the command line, but as a long term solution I need it in my script if possible.

Ubuntu :: Can't Unmount External Hard Drive

Jun 17, 2010

I have an external hard drive which connects to a usb port. until recently i could unmount it by right clicking on the desktop icon and selecting unmount. now when i try that it tells me that i can't because the device is not in fstab and i am not the root. i checked mtab and it had this line '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 msdos rw,noexec,nodev,nosuid 0 0' i changed that to '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 msdos user,rw,noexec,nodev,nosuid 0 0' thinking that would fix it, but it didn't. i unmounted using 'sudo umount /media/usb0' and restarted my computer and now the line in mtab reads '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 vfat rw,noexec,nodev,sync,noatime,nodiratime 0 0' and i still can't unmount without using the sudo umount command. i also tried adding '/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 msdos user,rw,noexec,nodev,nosuid 0 0' to fstab and that didn't help

Ubuntu Servers :: Unmount Of /dev/nbd0 Failed?

Oct 24, 2010

After in-place upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04, the message

Unmount of /dev/nbd0 failed
appears on the console at shutdown, with a warning that data may be lost, and followed by a 10 second countdown, after which shutdown continues normally.
Syslog shows this one line at each boot:

Oct 23 10:04:16 m2a74am kernel: [ 1.203334] nbd: registered device at major 43
Nothing gets mounted explicitly at /dev/nbd0, so I am puzzled about the error message on shutdown.

Ubuntu :: Unmount And Hide Windows Partition

Jan 9, 2011

When running linux (Lubuntu 10.04) my windows partition mounts automatically and can be opened and edited in file manager. Is there any way I can prevent it mounting when linux launches, prevent it from being mounted in linux, and (ideally) prevent it from being displayed/opened/edited at all from linux?(In case it's relevant:


Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

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 :: OpenOffice Locks Pendrive - Can't Unmount

Apr 21, 2010

When I have several documents open in OpenOffice.org and save one of them to my Pen/Flash drive, and then try to unmount, it won't let me. It says an OpenOffice document is using the drive. Here is the problem: The document refers to isn't the one I just saved to the Pendrive. It's a document saved on my Hard Drive! I close it (which should not be necessary) and try unmounting again. Now it tells me to close the document saved on the Pendrive.

I don't understand why I need to close ALL Openoffice documents to unmount the drive. Not sure if this is a bug in OpenOffice or in Ubuntu. Either way it's annoying and is a complete waste of time to be messing around with closing and opening documents every time I want to unmount an external drive.I have tested this on various computers all running Ubuntu 9.10, with both Gnome and LXDE. Same results. Ubuntu, I hate you!

I really liked what I saw so I used the Install ubuntu 11.04 wizard and chose the option to override the earlier version. During the 'Importing document and settings' step a pop-up entitled Failed to unmount partitions. the body stated: migration-assistant needs to mount a partition, but cannot do so because the following mount partition could not be unmounted:
