Hi,You are supoused to unmount the volume. Try it. umount /dev/cdrom ? Make sure that is it not in use, then unload it.
My Dell 600m has a CD writer attached as a USB device. I need to use the same slot to connect my floppy drive. After pulling out the CD writer , the machine completely hangs and only hard boot works. I am new to reporting bugs so I attached all info as according to REPORTING-BUGS. Please let me know if more info is needed.Thanks.
PS : I am not even sure if I am "allowed" to pull out the writer like this. Am I supposed to "stop" the device first or something?
New versions of gnome and so have the option to right click the loaded device and then to unmount.
It should never hang. Does it hang with the floppy when removed?
