It looks your problem has more to do with linux utilizing (mounting) your dvd/cd drive(s) than it has to do with drivers. The file you are going to need to edit is the /etc/fstab file. Most notable the entries for /cdrom and /dvd.
Here is the line from my fstab file for my Lite-On CDRW that I use:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cd iso9660 ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0
And here is the line I use for my Sony DRU510A DVD-+RW:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom1 /mnt/dvd udf ro,user,noauto,unhide 0 0
You need to be aware though that my DVD-+RW is only setup to play DVD's and it works fine, I haven't had to mess with getting it setup to Burn yet. I use my CDRW for all my burning needs (that sounds funny
) like music, data files and ISO's.
