mythfrontend automounts DVDs when I insert them. If mythfrontend isn't
running the drive doesn't get mounted and the eject button works. If I
then manually mount the drive the eject button ceases to work.
It sounds like you're saying that your eject button works even when the
drive is mounted? I thought it was normal for the eject button to get
disabled when the drive was mounted -- but if that's true how do other
Myth users eject their disks? Or alternatively how do I make my mounts
not disable the eject button?
