OK. That *does* explain why the drive is not found: it advertises itself 
(or, the kernel/udev recognizes it) as a floppy drive, rather than a CD 
drive.

I will ask some second opinions on this to see if/how we can solve this.

Ah, sorry. I forgot to add the filename. You did find the correct one, but 
given the above it is not really relevant.

Thanks for the additional info.
