This may help:

Change kernel name if/where required

If you dont know kernel type uname -a

are they listed in your /etc/fstab file?

were they present at install?

the irqpoll boot option could do the trick.
and you can test it before making it permanent.

mine worked from install.

Now where was i going? Oh yes, crazy!

I am using a Samsung SATA burner and it is working fine. It works exactly as though it was an standard unit. Although I use GNOME, not KDE.

PS hope this doesn't appear like reviving a dead thread.
