DVD+-RW drive stops after 15 minutes of use
I am a Linux user for about 2 1/2 years now, currently using openSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.2. I also dual boot with Windows XP.
I have an Optiarc DVD super-multi drive, works flawlessly on my Win XP partition. On Kubuntu and openSUSE, the drive will work fine for about 5 to 15 minutes, and will then stop working completely until I reboot. The light turns off, the disc stops spinning, and you can't even get the drive open.
I have tried finding someone else with the same problem on all of the forums, but can't find anything. As I said, it works 100% fine in Win XP, and it writes fine as well. I have even tried to replace the drive cables, still nothing. This leads me to believe it may be a kernel problem?
