when you did your upgrade/install last week did you modify (or forget
to modify) permissions in fstab for the cdrom?  does your Myth User
have perms to read from the cd?
also, before inserting your CD, check to see if the cdrom is mounted
or if something/one else is using it.  also, are your CD drivers
loading when you boot?
i've had this problem when trying to eject a CD before unmounting it. :)
