ok sorry for the triple post here but I just learned something new. I just
put in a dvd in both drives, new and old. When I tried to play the dvd in
the new drive, it played the dvd in the old one instead.

this happened when I first inserted the dvd and hit play in kaffiene. It
happened again when I clicked on the disc on the desktop and tried to play
it.

and just to recap:
I have three optical drives, two asus dvd burners, and one memorex external
cd burner.
I tried *sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules, *then I rebooted,
but it didn't help.
