I don't know what others have experienced, but one day recently
I did have a problem with mine. I was unable to open the disk
drawer to add or remove a disk and I could not get the icon with
a right click to "eject" the disk or open the drawer. I cound not access
the disk once I had one in the drive. After much confusion and
frustration I checked the permissions and found I had none. So I
had to 'chmod' the cdrom in /dev to to give me permission. After
that the button on the front of the drive worked, I could open the drawer
and close it with "eject" and all was, temporarily, right with the world!
