I replaced my DVD R/W to a newer dual_layer drive.

Since doing none of the "Optical Disks" functionswork.

I know the hardware is detected, see dmegs below:

--snip ---
Probing IDE interface ide1...
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
hda: max request size: 1024KiB
hda: 625142448 sectors (320072 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS8913/255/63,
hda: cache flushes supported
 hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
hdb: max request size: 1024KiB
hdb: 976773168 sectors (500107 MB) w/16384KiB Cache, CHS`801/255/63,
hdb: cache flushes supported
 hdb: unknown partition table
hdd: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
libata version 1.20 loaded.

I looked in /dev and found the dvd and cdrom were still linked to hdc.

So I deleted the links for dvd -> /dev/hdc and cdrom -> /dev/hdc and
recreated them for dvd -> /dev/hdd and cdrom -> /dev/hdd

But that failed to fix the problem.

When I try to import a cd the screen just flashes a few time and then hangs
until you hit escape,
and when it tries to burn a DVD, I get the following message in the
mythburn.log when it gets to where it should burn the DVD:

Burning DVD-R image
Sent UDP/XML packet to IP and port: 6948
:-( unable to open64("/dev/dvd",O_RDONLY): No such device or address
MythTV BurnDVD stopped due to error
Sent UDP/XML packet to IP and port: 6948

What am I missing?

I'm running KnoppMyth R5C7
