    Default Just an observation

    With OpenSUSE 13.1 on an IBM Thinkpad r60, if I eject a CD-ROM
    or DVD using any other method than the device manager dialog,
    I am unable to mount any other CD/DVD without rebooting the
    laptop. Logout/Login does not suffice.

    You can take the other CD-ROM, use the command umount and mount it again. After that you will have the other CD-ROM.

    No, you can't. That's the problem.
    If you try and mount anything after say, pushing the eject button on the
    device or using the eject option from within Dolphin or even using the
    umount command from the shell you cannot remount any media. You will receive
    the message, 'no medium found' for any subsequent disk insertion. The only
    way to reliably mount and unmount is using the Device Manager icon in the
    system tray.
