I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T61 laptop with LG HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GSA-U10N drive and Ubuntu 12.04 system on it. Recently I have noticed a strange behavior: automounting only some of the CDs/DVDs that I insert. Today I checked four disks:

  • a blank CD: detected and mounted properly
  • a burned CD with Windows XP installer: detected and mounted properly
  • an audio CD 1 (music): I could hear the initial sounds made by the drive, but after a minute or so it calmed down and stayed quiet
  • an audio CD 2 (audiobook): same as the above

I am happy to provide any logs and further info.

What can be a problem here?
