I get a combo drive with this laptop Acer Aspire 3002NLC, but
strangely the drive never seems to detect CD-RW's or DVD+RW's. (The
drive seems to vigorously blink for quite some time when the medium is
inserted, and mount after a long time returns "No medium found").
There seem to be no problems with CD-R and DVD-R. I have never
installed Windoze on this machine, so I don't know whether it is an
issue with my configuration. Does anyone have any pointers?
it moves on...

ide_cd is compiled in to the kernel. isofs is loaded as a module.
The media I tested with:
Eurovision CD-RW (4x - 12x)
TDK DVD+RW v1.2 Single Sided (1x - 4x)
I tested by burning the medium with cdrecord (on a diff machine, of
course :) ). I have also tried burning on a Windoze machine, with
