I've installed Kalyway 10.5.1to my Dell Inspiton 9300 notebook fromthe DVDdrive butnow I can't make my DVD drive (IDE) work after installation.
I can'teven eject the disc by pushing its hardware button - driveis locked. But when I insert a CD before the OS boots up, I can see it is mounted on the desktop and can read its contents (although DVD player app hangs while starting). But if I eject the discthen I loose it again.

The drive is a TSSTcorp CDRW/DVD TSL462C and controller is a Intel Ultra ATA Controller.

Thanks in advance for any help.

PS: It works smoothly in my XP installation by the way.

Correction: I am not sure if it can read properly when it seems to be mounted - I tried to copy a file and got an error...
