Output of "python cdcaps.py /dev/cdrom" on my system:

Before inserting any disk:

CDO_USE_FFLAGS returned 13
got drive capabilities: 39ffef
CDC_DVD_R support
CDC_DVD support
CDC_CD_RW support
CDC_CD_R support
got disc status: 0

After inserting a video DVD, nothing changes. Particularly, I still get:

got disc status: 0

Also, the following message shows up in the syslog:

cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!

Then, after replacing the video DVD with an audio CD, the capabilities don't change but the disc status does:

got disc status: 100

If I now again replace the audio CD with the video DVD, the disc is finally recognized:

got disc status: 101

Again, the capabilities did not change, unlike in the report posted by Barry Shilliday. From there on, the drive works just as it should until the next reboot.
