Re: Unable to mount cdrom in Lenny

Why can't I mount cdrom?

Running Lenny with custom 2.6.26 kernel. I don't often read CDROMs, so I don't know when this failed (yes, it used to work). Putting a CD into the drive no longer causes udev to provide a /dev/hda device. Kernel modules loaded (lsmod) include:
Looks good to me.  Also /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules has:

# BENQ_DVD_DD_DW1620 (pci-0000:00:06.0-ide-0:0)
ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_PATH}=="pci-0000:00:06.0-ide-0:0", SYMLINK+="cdrom", ENV{GENERATED}="1" ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_PATH}=="pci-0000:00:06.0-ide-0:0", SYMLINK+="cdrw", ENV{GENERATED}="1" ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_PATH}=="pci-0000:00:06.0-ide-0:0", SYMLINK+="dvd", ENV{GENERATED}="1" ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_PATH}=="pci-0000:00:06.0-ide-0:0", SYMLINK+="dvdrw", ENV{GENERATED}="1"

which seems reasonable, given the info.  In /var/log/dmesg:

NFORCE-CK804: 0000:00:06.0 (rev f2) UDMA133 controller
NFORCE-CK804: IDE controller (0x10de:0x0053 rev 0xf2) at PCI slot 0000:00:06.0
NFORCE-CK804: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later

ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
ide-scsi is deprecated for cd burning! Use ide-cd and give dev=/dev/hdX as device

Is the "IDE port disabled" significant? Even though a few lines later hda and ide0 seem to be set up properly? I haven't found anything missing from the kernel configuration. Unfortunately, this is on a server system that I'd rather not put through a lot of reboot cycles.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Does /dev/scd* exist?
