I had that problem on one machine. No matter what I did, as soon as I tried to
access the CD/DVD, the DMA got turned off.

What I eventually discovered was that the dma setting was wrong. My DVD was
udma2, and it was set for, I don't know, something else. Setting it with

hdparm -X udma2 /dev/hdc

and then turning on dma worked brilliantly. Maybe you have a similar problem?!
