I have an external LaCie CD-RW on a Zonett PCMCIA USB card. Other storages and the printer is recognized but not the CD writer. Or rather it is recognized at boot but not available for mounting.

Can anybody help? I run Knoppix 3.9 with 2.6.11 kernel.

Check and see if you have the PCMCIA IDE support enabled in your kernel config file;

Not set; # CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECS is not set
