There may be some clue there. Also, try booting the system with the noacpi option, just for a data point.Thanks for your suggestion. Now that you've mentioned dmesg, there is a message I didn't notice before:ATA: abnormal status 0x7F on port 0xC007 Vendor: TSSTcorp Model: CD/DVDW SH-S183A Rev: SB02 Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 05Here is the complete dmesg: http://www.metamorpher.de/files/dmesg.txt What does abnormal status mean? Is the controller incompatible to my drive?
The part of interest is actually all of this:
I think. The "abnormal status" almost certainly means "I don't understand" and not necessarily "broken," but it doesn't tell me much more than that. The device id is read, what does /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info tell you? Let's see what capabilities it detects.ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300) ata1.00: ATAPI, max UDMA/33 ata1.00: configured for UDMA/33 scsi2 : sata_via ata2: SATA link down 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 0 SControl 300) ATA: abnormal status 0x7F on port 0xC007 Vendor: TSSTcorp Model: CD/DVDW SH-S183A Rev: SB02 Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 05
