/etc/udev/rules.d/80-cdrom.conf
Code:
SUBSYSTEMS=="scsi", KERNEL=="sr0", SYMLINK+="cdrom dvd"

If you need something more sophisticated than "sr0" to identify the drive, there's documentation around on writing udev rules.

Well, my solution for /etc/udev/rules.d/80-cdrom.rules was something like this:
Code:
SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sr0", SYMLINK+="cdrom", GROUP="cdrom"
SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sr0", SYMLINK+="dvd", GROUP="cdrom"
SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sr0", SYMLINK+="dvdrw", GROUP="cdrom"
SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sr0", SYMLINK+="cdrw", GROUP="cdrom"


And I could activate it with
Code:
/sbin/udevadm test /sys/block/sr0/

(besides this is a good idea to check if the rules are applied)
