Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Just built a PC and installed Ubuntu 9.04. I have MP3 Songs on the internal SATA drive. When I go into the Music Player and try to play them, it won't let me. At the same time, all of the songs are being removed from the que until there are no more. When I go to reload the que, I get this message:"Error stating file '/media/disk': No such file or directory" I can reload the files into que and play them but, when I start the player the next time, I have to watch the files empty before adding them again. Package is Rhythmbox Version 0.12.0-0Ubuntu4

If I mount the drive BEFORE going into the rhythmbox music player, it does not empty the que. With the Ubuntu build on my old PC, I did not have to mount the drive before starting the player, thus this report.

if i understand correctly, are you expecting that rhythmbox should be able to mount that device for you instead of you doing that before hand or put it at fstab to be automounted? Are you seeing that with lucid ?

Yes, you are correct. With the last install of Rhythmbox in Jaunty I did not have to mount the drive that the MP3s were on before using Rythmbox. Since I switched PCs, and reinstalled Jaunty on the new PC, I now have to mount the drive to keep the song list intact... or explained another way, I manually mount the drive first so I don't lose everything in my song list when I go into Ryhthmbox. I am somewhat new so I do not understand fstab. I have not installed or run Lucid yet.

I am only concerned because one PC did not require me to mount the drive first while the second PC required me to mount the drive. The simplicity of Ubuntu (Not having to go to the terminal as often as some of the other Linux releases) is one of it's outstanding traits.
