Eject the Western Digital SmartWare VCD on login
Authored by: lar3ry on Apr 22, '10 09:37:26AM
I had a similar issue, but "fixed" it a different way. The Virtual CD in question comes from my Toshiba 1 TB external disk, which is my Time Machine disk. Every time the external disk connected, that damned virtual CD was mounted as well. I didn't want it! Since there are MANY ways to do the same thing in Unix, my solution was to modify (or create) /etc/fstab, and add the following line:

LABEL=Virtual\040CD none cd9660 noauto
The \040 escapes a blank character (octal 40, hex 20, decimal 32), as the name of my VCD was "Virtual CD." The "noauto" tells Unix not to automatically mount the file system with that label.
