Is there a way to unlock or reset a cdrom from the command line?
I was going to suggest either 'atactl' or 'scsictl' but it seems neither will
work for this. Can you use the 'eject' command at all?
Any ideas? Is this a 'feature' of having two 'cd' drives in one machine?
I also have a DVD(-writer) on cd0 and a CD(-writer) on cd1, and can't recall
ever having that kind of problem, so I'd say the answer is "no".
Further, I see that turning off the hal-daemon unlocks the drive. So one
is locking the other and I can probably live without hal. Is it possible
that the cd1 error is preventing hal from releasing the drive?
