Additional Note: the DVDs in this example were burned with WindowsXP over 10 years ago.

why did you start nautilus as superuser in the first place?

super user is used to quit nautilus then exit super user (this fixes problem)
nautilus is never started as super user

this does not fix problem --> nautilus -q && nautilus &

if you didn't start nautilus as superuser, you also don't need to quit it as superuser.
something smells fishy here.

what ever you posted there is not a solution but maybe an ugly hack to "fix" a probably completely unrelated problem.

did you actually have a problem, or are you just sharing your "wisdom"?

Before accidentally stumbling on this fix the problem, the computer
required a reboot everytime a DVD was ejected and another DVD inserted.

Moved from tips & tricks to here because it is an ugly hack. Maybe here we can find a proper solution or get a bug fixed.

I am wondering, if this is only with "DVD", or also with CD's ?

Problem is fixed by --> umount /media/cdrom0 and then mount /media/cdrom0 everytime another DVD inserted

Using the terminal to mount or umount, is another method of mounting
the CD or DVD, and would work, but it still does not solve the problem. which seems to be in "nautilus", not working properly,..
I could not duplicate the problem, so I don't think this is normal behaviour for nautilus,...unless it is another wonderful "new feature", in which case, rather then using nautilus , it works better using the terminal.

Image

When I started this, I all ready had a "blank" CD, in the drive, but as you can see
I ejected it, and then I put in another, it does take a little bit to load/mount, but
as you can see, I never needed to use the terminal , "eject" (umount), and then
I insert another, it also mounts and unmounts just fine,.. no need to be root
or use sudo, etc,...

I wonder what happens if you try installing a different file manager , if the same
problem occurs.
Also, is this with the Desktop Environment, GNOME ?
All though I have "nautilus", I am not using gnome, I am using OpenBox WM, instead, for whatever that is worth.

I don't have any definitive answer but I wonder, does this happen with all DVDs or just with those that were burned as UDF on Windows 10 years ago?

Additional info #1

same problem with both CDs and DVDs
same problem with CD burned with Microsoft Windows in 1998
same problem with CD burned with Microsoft Windows in 2002
same problem with CD burned with Microsoft Windows in 2013
same problem with DVD burned with Ubuntu 12.04 in 2014
same problem with DVD burned with Debian 7.4.0 Wheezy in 2015
same problem with DVD burned with Debian 8.6.0 Jessie in 2017Apr2

Additional info #2, left top bar displaying previous DVD name/label

insert DVD, updates left panel DVD name/label --> 2014Jan4
click DVD icon, updates left top bar DVD name/label --> 2014Jan4
remove DVD

insert another DVD, updates left panel DVD name/label --> 2014Feb24
click DVD icon
does not display folders or files
previous DVD name/label still displays, left top bar DVD name/label --> 2014Jan4

umount /media/cdrom0
label still displays, left panel DVD name/label --> 2014Feb24
left top bar changes to media
folders & files right panel updates to display --> cdrom, cdrom0, username

mount /media/cdrom0 <-- this now fixes problem
DVD motor turns on
display no change
click on DVD icon --> 2014Feb24 in left panel, now folders & files display perfect, and now updates left top bar DVD name/label --> 2014Feb24

Additional info #3, this happened once

insert DVD 2015Apr23
files & folders displays perfect but left top bar DVD name/label is still displaying previously inserted DVD
then a umount /media/cdrom0 and then mount /media/cdrom0 corrects the problem and updates the left top bar DVD name/label --> 2015Apr23

Well, I still don't have a definitive answer for you but perhaps a couple of things.

Under additional info #2, when you write "remove DVD" are you right clicking on the icon in "the left bar" and choosing eject or just pushing the button on the DVD drive to remove it?

You say you have Jessie 8.6, my system has been at 8.7 for a while now. I don't know if that might make a difference or not but, when I have something happen that I don't expect I make sure that my system is fully upgraded when troubleshooting.

It looks like the problem couldn't be related to UDF since this time you mentioned DVDs burned on Wheezy and Jessie which presumably were not in that format.

I, like debiman, also didn't understand that bit you wrote about having to quit Nautilus as su when you didn't start it as su.

That's all I have.

DVDs were ejected by pressing the plastic button on the side of the laptop.

This is a long example of the original post on how to fix the problem. (Do not use this solution)
The umount /media/cdrom0 and then mount /media/cdrom0 will fix the problem.

not super user
$ps -a (lower case)
Code: Select all
 1340 pts/0    00:00:00 su
 1341 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 2750 pts/1    00:00:00 ps

left top, Activities, click on nautilus gnome icon
click nautilus DVD icon (does not display folders & files)

not super user
$ ps -a (lower case)
Code: Select all
 1340 pts/0    00:00:00 su
 1341 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 2820 pts/1    00:00:00 ps

not super user
$ ps -A (upper case)
Code: Select all
 2801 ?        00:00:00 nautilus  (started from nautilus gnome icon)

super user
su
#nautilus (try again, start nautilus)
click nautilus DVD icon (does not display folders & files)

not super user
$ ps -a (lower case)
Code: Select all
 1340 pts/0    00:00:00 su
 1341 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 2841 pts/0    00:00:01 nautilus
 2854 pts/1    00:00:00 ps


not super user
$nautilus -q (does not kill nautilus)
$ ps -a (lower case)
Code: Select all
 1340 pts/0    00:00:00 su
 1341 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 2841 pts/0    00:00:01 nautilus
 2869 pts/1    00:00:00 ps

not super user
$nautilus -q (try second time, does not kill nautilus)
$ ps -a (lower case)
Code: Select all
 1340 pts/0    00:00:00 su
 1341 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 2841 pts/0    00:00:01 nautilus
 2897 pts/1    00:00:00 ps

*** super user ***
$su
#nautilus -q (only kills nautilus in super user)
$ ps -a (lower case)
Code: Select all
 1340 pts/0    00:00:00 su
 1341 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 2916 pts/1    00:00:00 ps


now nautilus will display DVD folders & files

Additional Note:

Non super user nautilus start and non super user nautilus -q is leaving trash behind therefore when nautilus is started again it uses the trash from the previous run and in this case does not display DVD folders & files

Super User nautilus -q cleans all the trash out and when nautilus is started again does not have any trash from previous run and now problem is fixed

I don't see any "meaning" beyond that the OP has a problem, of some sort.

I just installed nautilus to a recent Debian stretch installation, that I did yesterday,
and I can not duplicate the problem,... even though the newest version of nautilus
looks somewhat different , it still shows the Cdrom drive , and mounts or unmount
from the menu just fine, no need to use "su" or "sudo", etc,..
And they can be "ejected" as well from the menu,..
I don't really feel like posting more screen shots, like I did earlier as proof,
but Nautilus works as expected, and does list the DVD/CD folders just fine.
But I am not any kind of "expert" or VIP, so what do I know ? Maybe that is
why it does not make much sense to me.
In fewer words, simple, yes I agree, it seems to just be "white noise",
to me as well.
