Chapter 4. Using Media

This chapter covers how to use media such as hard drives, DVDs, CDs, and flash drives in Fedora. When these media are mounted, they are called volumes .

4.1. Understanding

When you insert media into your computer, Fedora automatically detects the volume. An icon is placed both on your desktop and in the Places menu.

[Warning] System hard disk is already mounted

The hard disk drive that Fedora is installed on is mounted during system boot and cannot be removed or ejected the way other media can. Access this drive through the Computer icon on the desktop or through Places > Computer .

When you are finished using your media, alert Fedora that you would like to remove this volume. To do this, right-click on the device's icon and then select Unmount Volume or Eject , depending on what type of media you are using.
