Ejecting a mounted CD/DVD-ROM image by guest OS does not unmount it

Reported by: tomers Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other



  • Host OS: Windows XP Home Edition SP3, VirtuaBox 1.6.2
  • Guest OS: Ubuntu 8.04

To reproduce

  • Mount a CD/DVD-ROM image to the guest OS.
  • Eject the mounted media device by the guest OS (right-click the CD icon on the desktop, and choose 'Eject'.

Expected results

  • The user expects to have that CD/DVD-ROM image automatically unmounted. In case he wants to load that image back to the guest OS, he knows he can mount it through the VirtualBox GUI.

Observed results

  • The disk disappears from the guest OS (OK).
  • The image is still considered mounted by VirtualBox.
  • It is possible to manually unmount it, and that's fine.
  • It is not possible to load the image back to the guest OS, unless manually unmounting it first.
