Thread: "Cannot unmount volume" message when opening dvd drive

  1. #1

    Default "Cannot unmount volume" message when opening dvd drive

    When I load a dvd, it is automounted as expected. However, when I press the button on the drive to eject it, the media IS ejected but I get an error message:

    Cannot unmount volume

    The volume '***' was probably mounted manually on the command line.

    Device to unmount is not in /media/.hal-mtab so it is not mounted by HAL

    Where *** is the name of the dvd.

    Does anyone know how to resolve this as it is a little annoying.

    I have had the same problem.

    This is how I resolved it:
    1. eject all discs from your drives (if not possible, restart your computer end eject the drives while booting)
    2. go to "/media" as root
    3. remove everything in there (rm -rf *)

    After performing these steps my Eject button works properly.
