    Post the output of this
    Code:
    hdparm -I /dev/dvd
    Execute above code as root.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Try restarting HAL as root

    service haldaemon restart

    No guarantee of success. I had a similar problem, not with CD drive but with removable USB sticks after installing a newly compiled kernel. Restarting HAL was what cleared the problem.

    restating hall fixed my computer tosee the disk when putin but kaffeine still stays black. when you hit start it just says stopped
