Bug Description

Binary package hint: policykit

Hardware: Samsung P28, external CD/DVD drive LG GSA-E60N
Distribution: Xubuntu 9.04

The error appears then I push eject button on drive:

Failed to eject "/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_serial_HL_DT_ST_DVD_RAM_GSA_E60N_P01080121063519_0_0".
Given device "/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/storage_serial_HL_DT_ST_DVD_RAM_GSA_E60N_P01080121063519_0_0" is not a volume or drive.

But when I unmount cd using file manager option, cd ejecting without any problem.

BTW I believe that this bug is duplicate of bug #195649

It's not an issue for me since I've upgraded to karmic koala, everything works just fine now. I'm agree with dicka, this is should be the same bug as #195649.
