Well, well, I don't have this problem here, but I do recall I had it on
debian. The solution was that debian did not add me to the "cdrom" group by
default, which was necessary to use the device. In my ubuntu install I'm
part of that group... maybe that's the problem

and, of course, one can always put a script on rc.*, but tha's awful 8-).
