    When you load the modules or when you try to open/read from either /dev/scd* or /dev/hd[cd].

    I'll have to look when I am booting next time, but I don't recall seeing any errors or failures whatsoever.

    Just reload the modules and check /var/log/messages.

    what's the command for that?

    sorry, I don't usually have to do that so I don't have the command to memory.

    rmmod ide-cd ide-scsi sr_mod scsi_mod cdrom
    Then modprobe the same ones, then (preferrably) tail -30 /var/log/messages

    and the plot thickens...

    Code:
    /sbin/rmmod ide-cd ide-scsi sr_mod scsi_mod cdrom
    ide-scsi: Device or resource busy
    sr_mod: Device or resource busy
    scsi_mod: Device or resource busy
    cdrom: Device or resource busy

    Oh... you're using KDE, right? I think its hotplug manager holds the CD ROMs open all the time. GNOME's magicdev just opens and closes them once in a while. Try logging out and doing it from the console.

    got this:

    Code:
    /sbin/modprobe ide-cd ide-scsi sr_mod scsi cdrom
    Warning: ignoring dma=1, no such parameter in this module
    Module ide-cd loaded, with warnings
    which tipped me off to the fact that I had added a line to my /etc/modules.conf file:
    options ide-cd dma=1 (or something like that)


    turns out I can't watch dvd's either:

    Code:
    Playing DVD title 1
    libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.7 for DVD access
    libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
    libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading
    Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/dvd
    Hmm, I rebooted and now I can play dvd's and data will automount on my dvd rom, but I still can't seem to get anything to mount on my cd writer.
