    Have enabled proper support in kernel?

    I got my DVD-drive to register as plain IDE-device but after removing 'generic' support for chipsets and just adding the correct one it started to work 10x faster.

    I mean have you compiled your kernel correctly? Mainly the chipset options. I had the generic chipset support compiled into kernel and it blocked my DVD-drive so it was too slow to play a dvd-movie properly. After removing the generic support and adding just the correct chipset there it started to work faster and I could play DVD's correctly.

    From kernel:
    Device Drivers -> IDE ATAPI settings (don't remeber the exact name)
