DVD drive not working if not feed before boot up

I've installed Kalyway 10.5.1 to my Dell Inspiton 9300 notebook from the DVD drive but now I can't make my DVD drive (IDE) work after installation.

I can't even eject the disc by pushing its hardware button - drive is 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 disc then 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.
