The cause to our problem is the udev rule file
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules.
It is generated by /etc/udev/rules.d/75-cd-aliases-generator.rules.
The point with
that is to always have a symlink (/dev/dvd) pointing to your device no
matter if you
add or remove some other cd devices.

The fix for me was to remove /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules
and it will be recreated
at reboot.
