Excluding a CD-R (CD writer) from volume management (vold) (Doc ID 1001561.1)

Last updated on JULY 31, 2012

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version: 8.0 and later   [Release: 8.0 and later ]
All Platforms

Goal

With the advent of CD-R drives, a.k.a. "burners", it is not always a good thing to have the volume management daemon (vold) controlling all cd devices. Since the media inserted into a CD-R is blank, vold will complain. There is also no reason for vold to even attempt to mount such media.
