I also had problems with FC6 not detecting my DVD-writer. Turned out
that this was caused by the line "options ide-cd dma=1" that I had put
in /etc/modprobe.conf  I removed that line, and the DVD is now found and
/dev/dvd-files are created.

Not sure this is your problem, but could be one thing to check.
