And what does this get you if run it, and then insert a disk? udevadm monitor
That seems to have hung in the terminal with no output?
Do you have any entries relating to the DVD/BDR unit in /etc/fstab? Comment them out if you do, modern Linux doesn't require it for automounting anymore.
No entries in fstab for anything other than local HD partitions.
I have previously looked in /dev with a disk mounted and /sr0 is present and is the device used.As for not having a /dev/sr0, that is highly suspicious. Have a good grep through the /dev directory, preferably when you do actually have a DVD mounted, and see what device is getting assigned to the unit and if there are any symlinks created (/dev/cdrom, /dev/cdromX, etc).
It's a triple boot (yes I know.. overkill :)) Win XP for older games, Win 7 for productivity and Mint. The optical drive works perfectly in both versions of Windows.Lastly, do you have the option of running Windows on that box to see if the behaviour there changes?
