    My DVD drive isn't being picked up by linux


    My DVD drive (burner) isn't being picked up.

    I have a cd rom drive and a DVD- Burner. The cdrom is being seen (/dev/hdd) but the dvdburner isn't.
    Here's the strange part, one time I booted and it was picked up (/dev/hdc) but its never been seen anymore.

    I know the device is working as it works under winXP.

    Anybody have an suggestions as to why this would be happening?

    Thanks.

    (Please note, this is NOT a mounting problem. The actual device is not listed in /dev)
