SuSE 9.1 problem - can't use/find DVD

Hi All!

I just found a problem with SuSE 9.1 and my installation: I can't use the DVD-ROM on my second IDE channel. The info from the various logs and /proc is included below. I've swapped my DVD-RW on IDE0 with it, and it works fine. So, I doubt that it is the device (it burns find, too!). It shows up in the BIOS. Note the difference for IDE0 under /proc.

If I try to mount /dev/hdc:
helios:/ # mount /dev/hdc /media/cdrom/
mount: /dev/hdc is not a valid block device


helios:/ # grep Pioneer /var/log/boot.msg
<4>hdc: Pioneer DVD-ROM ATAPIModel DVD-114 0110, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

and proc shows:

helios:/ # cat /proc/ide/ide1/hdc/model
Pioneer DVD-ROM ATAPIModel DVD-114 0110

helios:/ # cat /proc/ide/ide1/hdc/driver
ide-default version 0.9.newide <--IDE0 reports "ide-cdrom version 4.61"

helios:/ # cat /proc/ide/ide1/hdc/settings
name value min max mode

Any suggestions?
