Thread: CD/DVD drives don't have HAL Mount method

  1. CD/DVD drives don't have HAL Mount method

    Attempting to get to grips with all this new HAL stuff in 12, my user
    account is in the plugdev group, the desktop environment (XFCE4) spots
    the inserted discs but can't mount them:

    > Unable to mount "CD-R Disc":
    > Method "Mount" with signature "ssas" on interface
    > "org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" doesn't exist


    And indeed, checking lshal I see:

    org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Storage.method_names = {'Eject', 'CloseTray'}

    Shouldn't there be a 'Mount' method?

    Wrong item, should have been the volume item:
    org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.method_names = {'Eject'}

    Humm... I may have a dodgy drive (NEC 3550A), trying a few other discs
    and it magically works, and now the first set of discs I tried that
    didn't work originally, do.
