And when i try to mount it manually:

In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
this is the outpost when i tail the syslog

Dec 13 12:20:06 debian kernel: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.
I this is now beyond my skills, don't know if could be the kernel, a driver or what. Any help will be really appreciate it. Btw the unit support lightscribe and they have even linux download for the software, meaning the unit should be supported http://www.lightscribe.com/downloadSection/index.aspx

Thanks in Advance

Hello pliqui:

"This will be a kinda long post"

Three hundred twelve charectors on the first line ?
Rude. Nobody likes to scroll sideways.
Use 65 charactors max. (ENTER)

Cheers

Hi, you may use /dev/cdrom* (where * is the number corresponding to your device as listed in /dev) instead of any /dev/scd* or /dev/hd* . This is always a good idea in Debian.

Did you upgrade your device firmware ? It could come in handy if the manufacturer has been aware of any bug/problem...

When you type
Code:
groups
as a user, are you a member of the "cdrom" group ?

I don't see anything wrong with your /dev
Code:
ls -l | grep cdrom
so owner and permissions should be fine.

Is your burning app having some pref settings where you can set manually the burner specs (like in KDE K3B) ? If so have a look at the tech specs from the manufacturer website and fill in the informations manually.

I'll receive a sata burner from samsung this week (hopefully), so I'll be able to share my experience...

After all was the 64 bit kernel that doesn't have the driver. I tested it with fedora 8 64 bits and couldn't install, same for debian amd64, the installer failed when had to read from dvd.

So i switched back to debian 32 bits with 686-bigmem kernel and have my 4gb of ram. Wich os you are using, 32 or 64 bits?

I'm running a Debian 32bits and an OpenSuse 64, but i didn't receive my dvd burner yet (crappy on-line shop !) so i can't share my experience. I have seen issues before regarding 64 bits distro and drivers, though usually not with dvd burner.

Outside of the dvd drive, do you have any other warning/error message at boot time regarding an on-board chip or irq ? See
Code:
dmesg | grep irq
and
Code:
dmesg | grep error
to look for such messages.

What's the hardware you're running on ? (motherboard)

I bet you will not have any issue with debian 32 bits, even i installed the lightscribe for linux from www.lightscribe.com but you probably will have issues with opensuse 64 bits.
