SATA DVD mounting issues

I have been poking around the mailing list as well as the internet
trying to see if this has been reported by others, and I can't seem to
find anyone else with this issue. So I thought I would drop a note here
to see if someone has any suggestions. I had to build a Fedora 15
desktop on a 64bit machine for a user that we support (our first F15 box
in userland) and I did not add the local user to the admin group, as we
have some compliance issues doing that. That said, most everything
works, he is enjoying the new Gnome 3 interface and all the wonderful
new apps that he now has. But we have two lingering issues, one of which
I believe is an upstream app issue and not something that can be
addressed by  the Fedora community: integration of rabbitvcs with
nautilus seems hopelessly broken at this stage. The context menus seem
to be missing even though the CLI is there, and rpm/yum both see the
package installed. The main issue at the moment is user mounting his
SATA DVD drive ... he puts in a media disk and there is nothing mounted,
and nothing is showing in dmesg to indicate that the system has even
noticed the drive being opened and a disk inserted. However, in the boot
process the system definitely sees the DVD hardware

Has anyone else seen or have this issue as well? Any fixes?


Thanks in advance
