dmesg | grep sr results with a big fat nothing.

Code:


But the Bios is detecting the optical drives. No detection in the kernel. I think I have the kernel configured properly. If you guys have any ideas what I'm doing wrong please let me know.

You need to enable CONFIG_ATA_ATIIXP as well ("ATI PATA Support").

Yep that was exactly what it was. I had AMD/nVidia drivers selected when I needed ATi drivers. Thanks for pointing that out. All is well now.

EDIT: What I don't get about this is that both of my optical drives are SATA, but enabling this IDE driver made them work. Strange huh?

It's not strange, they just glued a ide-sata bridge to their old IDE controller hardware ;-)

get in bios, disable the combined mode. this way you got 6 port ahci, no atiixp anymore.
