kernel 2.6.26fc+ ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format"


HI All,
Recently I compiled a linux fedora kernel (2.6.27fc_x86_64bit) for sata support. After successful compilation and installation with new kernel, :-
--System is not able to mount cdrom.
--Always generate error, "medium not found"
--dmesg have an entry some thing like " ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format"


I don't know what went wrong, but i cross checked my new kernel config and my new kernel have following support:- (in respect of cdrom)
--SCSI device drive support[*]
--iso9660 file system support[*]
--ata-ide device support[*]
Also
--Sure of media (able to mount on different linux box)
--Can mount ISO image (i.e mount -t iso9660 image dir), So ther is no problem with FS spport
--Logs show kernel is able to mount Device
"scsi 0:0:0:0: CD-ROM TSSTcorp CDRW/DVD TSL462D DE01 PQ: 0"
So can't be problem with kernel modules

Now what comes in middel to all this ?? Plz help !!

Machine Details:
OS : kernel 2.6.26fc 64-bit
Ram: 32 Bit
disk: 4 Tb

Always post what distro and version you are running. It at least gives us somewhere to start.

Have you tried the regular Centos 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5 kernel. RHEL/Centos kernel #s are deceptive in that they back patch the kernels to the equivalent of much more current kernels.

HI
I have no issue with any other kernel version except, this one.
Btw,
I am able to mount it by changing some kernel boot parameter. (i.e at boot parameter , added all-generic-ide).
Now is it possible to inform kernel to detect any device in ide mode regardless of all.
(i.e, i am looking for some thing like /dev/sda = genric-ide )
--Alok
