Mixed is a standard CDROM format. Audio + Data. i.e. music CDs with

I had planned to look into that at some point. The biggest reason I
didn't was that there are no handlers for data disks so there wasn't any
real point. At some point I'd like to implement some sort of import
function for MythVideo/Music/Gallery/Game to copy files off of data disks.
You could probably trigger off of the SCSI emulation device (i.e.
/dev/sdaX is a USB/Firewire device)

That's a feature not a bug. I intentionally unlock the drive door (and
jump through hoops to do so). Personally I don't want to have to use
software to eject a DVD after I'm done playing it. IF you don't like
this behavior look at the "allow eject" parameter.

Because you also have to consider VideoCDs which are also
MEDIATYPE_VIDEO disks. How could MEDIATYPE_VIDEO be used by MythVideo
anyway? The MEDIATYPE_* constants refer to the physical media nothing
else. MythVideo deals with files...
