restart daemon that monitors cd/dvd drive bus
 
Sometimes my Linux Distros will not read a dvd or cd or if they do no application will open them properly. I would like to restart the daemon to see if this helps but I don't know it's name.

Thanks in advance!

There isn't a daemon that is really going to control whether or not your application can read a CD. The haldaemon does monitor for new hardware so that it can be automatically mounted.

More than likely, or bad media. You could also try doing a manual re-mount to see if it was some mount option that is causing issues. Try just mounting it with something like:

Code:

mount -v /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom -o ro
