Smile MSI DVD Writer Not Found

I have installed Ubuntu 10.4 on Dell Precision 4300 . I have two DVDs .One is player that works okay, but the system does not recognice the other one ,which is MSI DVD writer. Those are both ATA connected on same line . I have tried to switch positions ..but the MSI writer is always hidden.
I can't see MSI on your hardware compatabilty list. Is it not useable with Linux ?
Greetings, Andres

Hello. My english is not good, sorry.

Well, i have a problem similar.

Have an HD s-ata, and dvd-writer s-ata too, with ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
with the dvd cant get read or write.
Sometimes read a virgin dvd, and sometimes cant mount anything.

In /dev have a device called dvd1 and dvdrw1.
I tryed to mount some of this, and nothing.

There are some problem on Ubuntu 10.04 and DVD S-ATA ?
