Okay. I'm starting to suspect the kernel and/or setup though, so
this is probably not top priority.

Hmm. Freezing, but only after a few minutes. Could be an IRQ
problem, but then that's done by the controller, not the drive.
Maybe a chipset problem? See below...

Make sure you've got VIA chipset support enabled in your kernel, and
perhaps enable PCI Quirks as well. See
Documentation/sound/VIA-chipset about that.

Hmm, and neither does readcd on inspection. Sorry about that, it
works for me because I only use my reader to rip audio CDs with
cdparanoia, and my burner to burn ISOs from the net, and backups.
If I want to read an image off a CD, I just use the burner. But
ofcourse that's no good for on-the-fly copying.
Anyway, I'd go with the kernel configuration first. If that doesn't
work, I suggest asking for help on lkml, this sounds like a
kernel/hardware problem rather than a problem with readcd.
