Titel: Escape from spinning CD syndrome?  BeitragVerfasst am: 19.10.2006, 00:52 Uhr

Sometimes a CD or DVD disc will get in some kind of loop and keep spinning. Even killing the original app will not get it to stop and eject. Usually, I can't get control and have to do a hard reboot with the ON button. Anyone know a better way to handle this?

Thanks,
Ron

When does this occur? What app are you using? It's obviously not normal.

Something like that usually indicates a firmware problem with the affected drive (perhaps triggered by barely readable media).

It usually occures when copying a DVD that I own with k9copy. The disk to be copied may indeed have an error (probably intentional). If I have to go to the IRC with this one, I understand.

Thanks,
Ron

I've seen that issue, many times you can fix it by going to console, su to root, then use the eject command

I'm not sure which version you eject now, I think it's eject /media/hdc or whatever it is, might be: eject /dev/hdc

try both, it used to work.

The problem is that the program owns the cd or dvd as root, I think anyway, so you can't force eject without being root.

<added>
Yes, just tested it, as root: eject /dev/hdc forces ejection assuming that's your cd / dvd location.
