Anyone have any ideas why a DVD drive that works perfectly isn't detected by openSUSE 11.4 x86_64? Yesterday I downloaded the net install CD, burnt it, and used it. It worked perfectly, but the DVD drive isn't detected. dmesg gives some obscure error, and there is no device for it in /dev. It still works perfectly from within Windows or before booting to openSUSE. It was working fine in Fedora a few days ago. The drive is a LG GH22LS50 (SATA) on one of the SATA3 ports on my GA-P67A-UD3R motherboard.
Well, I tried with the SATA2 ports, and it works fine. That is nice, but I wanted it to work on the SATA3 ports because of the chipset bug. I guess it doesn't matter, as I'll be getting a replacement within a few days.
