Slackware 11 + Linux 2.6.17.13-smp + Benq DVD-ROM = Can't read dvd


Hi, i recently bought a computer and put Slackware 11.0 to it, everything runs fine now except for the Benq DVD reader.
When i insert any DVD into the drive and try to mount it says "mount: not a directory" such thing doesn't happen when i insert a CD.
I tried with Kernel version 2.6.18 and still happens, the weird thing is that in another computer (mother M571) it did work with the same kernel. I can only read DVD if i use Kernel version 2.4.33
The drive works fine in Windows XP SP2
Hardware
Mother: M2NPV-VM
CPU: AM2 Athlon64 X2 3800+
Memory:1 G minus 32 Megs (onboard video)
Video: Onboard GeForce 6150
DVD reader: Benq DVD-Rom 16X (/dev/hda)
Hard Disk : Western Digital 160G SataII (/dev/sda)

Dmesg | grep DVD
===========================================
hda: BENQ DVD-ROM 16X, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hda: ATAPI 50X DVD-ROM drive, 512kB Cache
===========================================

devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
===========================================
/dev/dvd is a symlink to /dev/dvd0 which is a symlink to /dev/hda

I don't know if you need any other informations

Thanks in advance

Sorry if can't express myself very well, english is a second language to me.

My PC does not read with Samsung DVD-RW

I try use my DVD-RW Sansung Writemaster SH-162D, but it does not recognize CD or DVD (burned to me or not).
When I install the system, it work properly. But if the system is installed, does not work!
In the Windows 2000 or 2003 it work well, after instalation of Samsung firmware.
I need help.
