I find CD drives to be an incredible pain in the ass this way in Linux. 
I've had no end of trouble with them.  Fortunately they're cheap.  Recently
I finally gave up struggling with my 4-year-old SCSI 12x4x8 burner, and
bought a new IDE 52x32x52x16 Sony model for about $50.  It works way
better, and way faster.  Well worth it.
