Strangely enough, I find that if I've ejected the tray and inserted a disc
(CD, DVD, whatever), the HAL system automounts - and then "Eject Media" will
work for me. However, selecting this command merely brings up a menu listing
which device (/dev/hdb is my only CD-ROM) or a cancel. Selecting /dev/hdb
does ... nothing.
I ended up binding a key on my remote control to the irexec
command "eject -T /dev/hdb". Works to eject or insert the tray. I also bound
another button to a sudo'd script which turns on DMA and resets the CD-ROM -
handy in case a corrupt disc causes a DMA reset in the ATAPI layer and eject
no longer functions normally.
