Looked there tried to blacklist it but it still loaded.

I did however track it down. I had an entry in hdparm.conf to disable dma on
/dev/hdc. I need that because this drive doesn't like dma one bit.
As soon as I removed that entry ide_cd stopped loading. Unfortunately the
cdrom would then give errors when mounted.

In the end I've had to disable dma on ide within grub and then enable it on
/dev/hda using hdparm.conf  - yuk!!!

Any better ways of getting round this?
