I have the same problem, except with 2 nearly identical cdrws (TDK 52x and a TDK 48x drive)

When I tried the above, a get "no such file ordirectory".* I have edited my etc/fstab file to show hdc cdrom0 and hdd to be cdrom1.

Both show up as working in the System Bios.*

I originally installed the feisty i386 lamp server edition, but then installed the gnome destktop.* The second cdrw worked briefly.

Any help would be grealy appreciated.
