I've seen this happen when the underlying bus (IDE/SCSI) is having hardware
problems and when the OS doesn't support the controller.
Both scenarios will dump useful information to /var/log/messages and
may /var/log/kern.log. "dmesg" may have some further information about
reported hardware etc during boot.
The basic problem might be that due to either incompatibility or hardware
fault, your CD drive is getting an "EJECT" message. This can happen when the
controller throws garbage onto the bus.
Usual disclaimers apply. YYMV.
In Devon, Connecticut, it is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset.
