    CD/DVD drive opens then immediately closes

    I have a dual-G4 Mac with a recent clean install of Lucid. When I hit the keyboard eject key or try to open the drive door from the command line with "eject /dev/cdrom" to try inserting a CD, the drive door opens then immediately closes before I can insert a CD. I didn't have this issue in Jaunty. Any ideas?

    Could anyone recommend tests to narrow down the issue?

    Code:
    eject
    causes the drive to open and immediately close

    Code:
    eject -t
    does nothing

    Code:
    eject -T
    causes the drive to open and immediately close

    There is something wrong with this, I have no idea how to solve this. It has to come from upstream (udev).

    I posted to the launchpad bug, but I'm not sure it is the same issue. The problem there appears to be difficulty ejecting a disk.
