Can anyone tell me what this means exactly and is there a way to eject or unmount the device?

Looks like the properties/about for your DVD burner.
 
Right click the drive and if its mounted you should get the option to unmount.

 Windows Mac and Linux users should UnMount/Eject a drive before unplugging it, You know how sometimes your USB Drive goes raw well that's 1 of the main culprits.

   Open terminal and type hdiutil eject FullUnixName to eject it.
    Example: hdiutil eject /dev/sr0″.

Are you booting from a Live Disk of some sort then trying to eject the DVD/CD drive? And you do understand that in A Linux enviroment just because you can see an icon or shortcut to a drive on a desktop or some place dont mean that drive is "Mounted"

When browsing the drives or folders on a Linux OS, one will need to right click 'Computer', all of it's drives will be shown.

 

To access a drive or media, right click onto it, select 'Mount'. An icon will appear on the desktop, be it a drive or optical media. From there, it can be opened. Note that some types of media on a Linux OS are read only.

 

What is it you're attempting to do? That may guide us in the proper direction & assist in advising you further.

Do you have access to another computer to test the device? We have to be able to determine whether the device itself is working.

 

It could be the USB ports not seeing the device, or an issue with the device itself.

Ok. Stop.

 

When I first saw this I figured you just didn't know how to unmount a drive in Linux.

 

 

Please explain in detail what it is you are trying to do, What the problem is, This pc you used Dban on? Is that the same pc as in your first post in this thread? The same pc that you posted this about? It has no Operating system?

Be as detailed as you can. Normally you find that the things you are not telling us are more important than the things you are. Plus that other thread tells me nothing.

The log you posted is the same machine that I am using to get on the internet and post here. To make things clearer I will only post things about this machine(Dell Laptop). It has been hard to explain what is going on as I have only used Linux for a short time. Linux has uncovered some things that I have not been able to see using Windows so I am trying to give info the best I can. I have really discovered a lot today so bear with me as I try to compile it all so that you understand and may be able to help. This seems to be a pretty complex issue someone has bestowed upon me and I only ask you to not ask me,"Why would someone waste their time doing this to you?" My answer is "I have no idea"

 

 

I just now learned that I have 2 desktops and one has been hidden.   Is therre some kind of scan I can do to let you guys know what all is going on?

,"Why would someone waste their time doing this to you?"

I have said the same thing about being married, My wife just looks at me and says" Don't let the door hit you, Where the good lord split you, If you don't like it" and sometimes she even lets me sleep in the house and on the lounge after I say that. I think I may have to invest in a sleeping bag, something about the blankets being hers as well, You know how women can be?

Too funny!   I also just realized I can use both desktops and the settings are completely different. The Bluetooth setting on one had a Local Services to click on and and it had two boxes that were not checked.   Under Audio Service it had "Advanced Audio Reciever" and to the side written in red "Experimental"   Then "Headset Emulation" and also written in red. "Very Experimental"   I tried to do a screenshot but had no luck.

Ok try this.

 

Linux type, eg Ubuntu what?  How are you booting.

 

 

Linux has uncovered some things that I have not been able to see

What things, How did it uncover them.

 

What has all this got to do with unmounting a DVD? You are jumping all over the place it is hard to keep up, Sorry.

 

First lets find out the basics then we can go on.
