Checking /dev/cdrom for cdrom...
Testing /dev/cdrom for cooked ioctl() interface
/dev/scd0 is not a cooked ioctl CDROM.
Testing /dev/cdrom for SCSI interface
No generic SCSI device found to match CDROM device /dev/scd0
Now, I really don't understand this as it works for root and the symlinks
work for the dvd player, cdplayer, cd-rw etc. I have /dev/scd0 symlinked to
/cdrom and only with Grip am I finding the problem.
Surely it must be file permissions somewhere if the link is o.k as root?
