So my dvd burner stopped mounting today. Worked fine last night, burned ISOs and such. Last thing I remember doing with it is using it to install some games with Wine 0.9.
hda is the burner
hdb is my cdrw, which works fine and mounts fine
The drive and cables are fine, works fine under windows and does a livecd just fine.
first off: dmesg

This used to have my DVD burner listed at the 0 spot.
symlinks are fine:
ls -lah /dev/hda
brw------- 1 xxxx disk 3, 0 Feb 23 2004 /dev/hda
ls -lah /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Nov 16 13:47 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hda
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro,unhide 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro,unhide 0 0
I haven't changed any code or symlinks since yesterday. It just stopped mounting. I may have had to do a forced software eject, but i don't think i did.
I really have no clue where to go from here. There is a cdrom in the drive when I try to mount it. That cdrom mounts fine with my other drive. I could try reinstalling wine, but there is no process running that could be stealing my cdrom. I've rebooted many times.
thanks for any ideas.
