Nope, but that's not surprising since it's not in dmesg either.
The other four disks on the system (four SATA 1TB's for recordings and
videos) and the system disk (400GB IDE) do show up and those are all
working. The evidence says the BIOS sees the optical drive (it even
identifies it) but the Linux kernel does not.
