Thanks for responding.
Hope you don't mind a personal reply this time
(I don't know what I'm expected to do "officially"!).
I tried "modprobe sr_mod" but it didn't get loaded.
I'm attaching the dmesg file you asked for.

The 'cdrom' module is not a driver but is *used* by drivers. The driver
for the SATA interface (ata_piix in this case) is supposed to detect
SATA devices and request the appropriate driver for the device types
found (sr_mod for a CD-ROM). Since sr_mod has not been loaded, it
appears that the problem is in device detection. (And loading sr_mod
should have no more effect than loading cdrom, because no device has
been found for it to bind to.)

After reading the Ubuntu bug report (#794642) I found that this Debian bug is also due to the SATA mode in my computer being set to IDE. When this is changed to AHCI the problem vanishes: /dev/cdrom appears.

You should keep cc'ing the bug address. I've forwarded your message

OK, this shows:

Right, I thought that might work.
Would you mind testing the patch with the SATA interface back in
