Where's My CD/DVD?

Hello,

I recently upgraded from CentOs 6.6 to 6.7 and among others oddities, my
CD/DVD drive has disappeared from the system. it lights up when I
insert a disc and appears to be reading, but that's it.

Any thoughts? Many thanks!

Have you tried manually mounting it?

Afraid I'm new enough at this I'm still in the learning curve.
I re-booted into a previous kernel version and now the CD/DVD is on the
list (under computer) but properties reveal "unknown" for every area.
Seems strange because it knew all about the Asus drive when I first
installed the system.
So, if you don't mind, I'm ready to learn something else; how to
manually mount the drive (still a bit gun shy).

Thank you

I have a similar problem in Fedora (see
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1234317" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1234317">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1234317</a>) but nobody seems to
take care of it. Hope that Centos is more responsive :-)
