CD-ROM symlink changes with migration from ide to scsi

Bug #227426 reported by Barry Shilliday on 2008-05-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
udev (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

When using a SATA optical drive on Ubuntu 8.04, /dev/scd0 is correctly configured, but /dev/dvd and /dev/cdrom are not created. This causes certain applications that expect these links to fail.

description: updated

Please attach your /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules file

This indeed is a problem. I am not sure why suddenly Ubuntu started recognizing my internal CD drive as SATA drive instead of IDE. So it now creates a scd0 device and cdrom1 symlink.
I was wondering why mplayer was causing me problem while playing VCD. When I changed the device setting in mplayer to /dev/cdrom1 and it worked fine.

On a side note Hardy is also recognizes my hard disk as SATA even though it is IDE.

Please find attached the rules file requested.

By the way bug #218572 might be related.
