Many distros not recognizing my Sony SATA DVD drive


I read the other posts and cannot find a solution to my problem. I tried Knoppix, Sabayon, Debian, they boot up but then cannot find the DVD drive to read from and says it is dropping me to a low level shell. I got PCLinuxOS, FC6, Mandriva, and Mepis to work. Is this because SATA technology is not mature in these distros? I tried all the different boot options and I want to be able to run some of these other distros as I like to have a few on one computer. Here is dmesg:

I think I read somewhere that the kernel modules for SATA cd/dvd drives are still in an experimental state. So many distributions, especially more conservative distros like Debian, probably won't include them until they're more stable.

I wish I could find the article I read... Hmmm...

A quick google gives:

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Proble...not_recognized

So it appears that some distros have ata_piix compiled with SATA ATAPI support, and some don't.

Although looking again at the post it was talking about non SATA drives... sorry!
