No, I gave up on it. I just bought a VIA SATA PCI controller (VT6421),
which works for the device also in Linux. I don't know what ASUS / VIA
botched with the onboard VIA SATA controller (VT6420) which works full
in Windows, but read-only in Linux, for the SATA DVD burner.
Either the hardware is broken and Windows VIA drivers know some kind
of work-around, or the Linux drivers have a strange bug.
