DVD drive isn't being picked up


My DVD drive (burner) isn't being picked up.

I have a cd rom drive and a DVD- Burner. The cdrom is being seen (/dev/hdd) but the dvdburner isn't.
Here's the strange part, one time I booted and it was picked up (/dev/hdc) but its never been seen anymore.

I know the device is working as it works under winXP.

Anybody have an suggestions as to why this would be happening?

Thanks.
