Mounting PCMCIA Firewire DVD+RW

I'm a bit of linux newbie, and i've been putzing with this for a couple days now, and I havent been able to figure it out. So I'm gonna throw all sorts of info out here, hopefully some of it is relevant.

I have a NEC-ND1100A DVD+RW in a IDE to firewire enclosure. I have this connected to my laptop via a Startech Cardbus IEEE1394 PCMCIA Card. I'm having a bit of trouble mounting it however.

I'm running Red Hat 9

When I check KLaptop to see if the card is being seen, the screen tells me that its a Cardbus hotpluggable device, but that there isn't a driver loaded.

So I checked modprobe -d ieee1394 and modprobe -d ohci1394 and they both present
I then checked lsmod and both were present again.

I then dug around in dmesg Here is a cut and paste of what I think the relevant output is, I saved the whole thing to a file if anyone is interested, but here's just the one section.
ieee1394: Host added: Node[00:1023] GUID[0011060000003d7a] [Linux OHCI-1394]
spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.
ieee1394: Device added: Node[01:1023] GUID[0030e0015000a2f8] [Oxford Semiconductor Ltd. ]
ieee1394: sbp2: Logged into SBP-2 device
ieee1394: sbp2: Node[01:1023]: Max speed [S400] - Max payload [1024]
scsi1 : IEEE-1394 SBP-2 protocol driver (host: ohci1394)
$Rev: 707 $ James Goodwin <>
SBP-2 module load options:
- Max speed supported: S400
- Max sectors per I/O supported: 255
- Max outstanding commands supported: 64
- Max outstanding commands per lun supported: 1
- Serialized I/O (debug): no
- Exclusive login: yes
Vendor: _NEC Model: DVD+RW ND-1100A Rev: 1.90
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi CD-ROM sr1 at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sr1: scsi3-mmc drive: 40x/40x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray

Seems like it should be at /dev/sr1 right? But when I tried mounting it
mount /dev/sr1 /dev/dvdr
It tells me that the special device does not exist.

Any ideas?
