Re: DVD+RW gone missing on moving to kernel 2.6.6

Just hit this problem myself.  Here's what I did - let me know if it 

1) Remove any "hdc=ide-scsi" lines from /etc/lilo.conf (grub? No 
idea...) and then run "lilo" as root.

2) # modprobe ide-cd

3) $ cdrecord dev=ATA -scanbus

... and use the x,y,z triple that cdrecord reports, as in

$ cdrecord dev=ATA:x,y,z <other_options>
