Hello. i dont think this is somehow related with the Kernel, but without any doubts with the hardware, so i`m writing here. i have a SATA DVD-RW device (with tray loading) and it`s gone mad. I`ve put a dvd+rw disk in it, have written an iso, using the growiso tool (everything went fine), but i just couldnt eject that disk back. Ive used the eject command. the drive opened the tray, but then CLOSED IT BACK again after just a second or two (i didnt even had a time to remove the disc from it`s tray). Then i`ve used the hardware button on its front panel - same result. The only way i could remove it is by rebooting my PC and push that front panel button while in the grub boot menu. So it`s somehow related with the linux. Also i`ve tried to load another factory-made dvd. and it does the same - it`s allowing me to put any disk in, to read or write it, but not to eject it back. what shoul i do to make it work normal?

Try running the following command as root:
Code:
sysctl dev.cdrom.autoclose=0

sysctl != systemctl. sysctl belongs to sys-process/procps (part of the system set), while systemctl belongs to sys-apps/systemd.
