KDE - audio CD fails to rip, I eject it, and can't read another CD until reboot


I'm running a Gentoo system with KDE

My usual process for ripping a CD is to insert the CD. Konqueror opens up, I open up the Ogg Vorbis folder and drag and drop the contents to where I want it in my filesystem.

I have a CD that just refuses to rip, and when the rip fails, I'll wait a while, give up and cancel the file transfer. I'll then eject the CD, but the Audio CD icon on the desktop doesn't go away. Once I put in a new CD, I won't be able to read anything off of it until I reboot the machine. Is there some daemon that I can restart to get this fixed?

Grip was no help either.

I'm using an aopen IDE DVD/CD burner to read my CDs. AMD64 system.

It sounds like the CD drive is still mounted. Try running "umount /dev/cdrom0" as root where /dev/cdrom0 is the device for your cdrom. That should fix it. The reason it works on reboot is that the OS automatically unmounts all mounted partitions before shutdown.
