Not sure what to make of that file. Never checked it out before.

Anybody got some feedback?

I'm no expert but I have something similar/ I wouldn't worry about automatically generated stuff. As far as I can see I'm running sata disk and pata cdronm on these

Depends on what bus your hardware uses and how it is categorized by Fedora. Some distributions use /media/cdrom others may use /dev/scd0

What do you get with these two commands?

Code:
grep -H . /sys/block/*/device/model
Code:
dmesg | grep cd
Those will point out what your optical device is under.

Is there a way to force Fedora to scan again to add my drive? As I said before, I was able to boot into a liveCD from it.

Unfortunately it scans every time you boot.

Quote:
grep -H . /sys/block/*/device/model
/sys/block/sda/device/model:ST3160815AS
/sys/block/sdb/device/model:WDC WD10EADS-65L
/sys/block/sdc/device/model:WDC WD10EADS-65L
So, it sees your hard drives but it doesn't even recognize that you have the optical drive even plugged in. There isn't even a device path to reference. I don't know what else to suggest other than see if another distro will recognize it, but I'm doubting it at this point.

Maybe someone more experienced than me will have some suggestions?

That's fundamental.
As I see it, the drive is not identifying. That's very unusual. If you boot on it, it may even work. But the BIOS has a record of what's installed and can simply address the correct bus and set it reading on block 1.

I would suspect connections, power supply. Then I would time out, and call it a failed drive. It's unusual but not unknown for a circuit failure to kill a disk. Absolutely nothing else suggests itself.

This weekend I'll take a look at the BIOS, confirm once more whether it can boot a liveCD, and report back. when I did some googling, I did see a SuSe user complaining that a kernel change had left his ATA optical drives inaccessible while his SATA one would work. I do know that I have tried two different PATA drives in this computer with the same symptoms. So if anything hardware is broken, it'd have to be the MOBO, not the drive. Unless I coincidentally have two broken PATA optical drives? Which mathematically COULD happen, but is unlikely.

If you get booted, I would try to mount the cdrom in the live system. You can get caught on silly things like not having both drive channels enabled.
