F-18 CDROM problem -

I installed an "optical drive" in this F-18/64 XFCE computer and it is 
apparently recognized by several applications however I don't see an 
icon come up on the desktop when I put a cdrom in the drive. The same 
disk works as expected in a similar F-18 computer.

When I put the disk in the drive the light flickers for a while and then 
stops, no icon appears, and it is reluctant to eject.

[bobg at box10 ~]$ ll /dev/sg1
crw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 21, 1 Mar 16  2013 /dev/sg1

I don't know how to troubleshoot this so any help is appreciated.
