The device can't but the driver can.
I assume you use your CDROM? Just because they currently don't have a reference count doesn't mean they aren't used.The machine has a CD drive in it, but, short of installing a new distro off CD, I will never use the CD drive. (This is a server machine.)
Yes but you aren't helping anything by unloading the module for it. It isn't like you are going to boost system performance by unloading the module for the cdrom. If it bugs you then just uninstall hotplug and load what you need by hand (/etc/modules). Be careful though... I've seen lots of people forget to load the NIC driver and lose access to the box. -Eric -- "Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school." - Albert Einstein
