I do agree that there might be some bug. I have 2 optical drives :
-1 DVD player
-1 DVD recorder
(running on 10.2 x86_64)

I don't remember (should check) if every CD or DVD give the same results but :
If i insert some DVD in the DVD player, they aren't mounted automatically (but
I can mount it through CLI (as root mount /dev/hda /media/something).
The same DVD inserted in the DVD recorder is automatically mounted.
This behaviour did not happen at the begining (right after the install), so it
might be due to some update.
Second point, as someone else on the list reported (sorry can't remember), the
DMA is sometimes turned OFF for the DVD player (not the DVD recorder). I have
to set in ON using Yast. I don't know if these 2 points are link together.

I would love if someone could explain what is wrong.
