Make sure that any open folders or programs that are accessing /mnt/cdrom or *did* access it are closed. If all else fails then open a terminal like gnome-terminal or xterm or konsole and type umount -f /dev/cdrom that will force the CD-ROM to be unmounted. If it still gives you fits then su password: umount -f /dev/cdrom in the terminal. In Gnome look under preferences -> CD properties to set the preferences. I turned off use auto-run and open a folder for mounted CD ROM and that helped to reduce the problems. -- Best Regards, Keith NW Oregon Radio http://kilowatt-radio.org/ Pax melior est quam iustissimum bellum.
