> I am unable to open either of my dvd drives when devkit-disks-daemon is running. One doesn't open at all and the other occasionally opens but gets pulled closed immediately. Running `ps ax` I see "devkit-disks-daemon: polling /dev/hdc /dev/hdd". If I kill that process I am able to open the dvd drives and use them without problem. Please let me know what you need to debug this.

You should recompile your kernel using libata, or apply the patch 
we ship in Debian to add ide-cd support.
The patch is against udisks though, and I suggest you upgrade from
devicekit-disks to udisks, too.
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
