All DVD capable drives at IDE are supposed to work by the SCSI/MMC protocol
via ATAPI. So there is few chance that the drive itself is not matched by
the kernel's sr driver.

If the drive does not show up as Linux device, i would rather bet on
a driver mismatch with the IDE/ATAPI controller of the machine.

Have a nice day :)
