umm...sometime ago,i wrote the linux ide-cd driver maintainer about problem
with my drive (Asus CD-S360 drive),basically,the 2.2.12 driver didn't worked
at all with it,he said some drive aren't very well supported (including
mine),so now,i use the atapi-scsi emulation driver and enable the scsi cdrom
support in the kernel,work fine for me (sidenote: i promised to ship him the
necessary amount of cash as soon as i get some,so he'll be able to buy the
Asus drive....might well include more cash so he enjoy a good beer while doing
his work !!!).
