17 My hardware is several years older than yours, so my knowledge is obsolete :(
19 My dvd player uses the old flat-ribbon cable (5 cm wide) attached to an old
20 PATA controller plug, so naturally I need a PATA kernel driver to use the dvd
21 drive.
23 Does your dvd drive use a new (small) SATA cable to connect to the motherboard?
25 If the answer is yes, then your understanding is correct, and your kernel *should*
26 be announcing your dvd hardware in dmesg.
28 Are you sure the cables are connected properly to the dvd drive? Are the lights
29 on the dvd drive blinking normally during boot?
31 I'm still trying to separate hardware/driver problems from udev problems.
