    kernel 3.7.0-7-generic : no dvd read

    Hi to u all !
    I can't read any DVD since I switch to kernel 3.7.0-7-generic. I'm not talking about DVD video, it seems I can't read any DVD at all. No matter blank, data dvd, etc.
    Before reverting back to main 3.5 kernel (i'm not even sure i didn't have the problem before 3.7.0-7... + i have an awful list of compil to redo if i revert back), I wish to know if others are experiencing same problems or if you heard about a possible fix.
    Here's the DVD writer I'm using :
    sudo lshw -short -numeric :
    Code:
    /0/4/0.0.0        /dev/cdrom      disk        DVD+-RW GSA-H31L
         *-scsi:1
              identifiant matériel: 4
              nom logique: scsi1
              fonctionnalités: emulated
            *-cdrom
                 description: DVD writer
                 produit: DVD+-RW GSA-H31L
                 fabriquant: HL-DT-ST
                 identifiant matériel: 0.0.0
                 information bus: scsi@1:0.0.0
                 nom logique: /dev/sr0
                 version: 1.05
                 numéro de série: [
                 fonctionnalités: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd dvd-r
                 configuration: ansiversion=5 status=nodisc
    Strange thing is that i can read cd & cdroms just fine, which doesn't make any sense for me. Did i miss a package or something ??
    Thank you for your help !

    Expect frequent breakage and many unsolvable bugs, when using a kernel that's not part of a stable Ubuntu release. Why on earth are you using this kernel?

    Because of xorg-edgers ppa, which comes with such kernel plus I was trying to revive some old DVB-T usb, which was known to work better with it (and it was a little true, but not that great).
    So in your opinion, i need to revert back ... true ?

    Yes.... I advise to wait for 13.04 Raring Ringtail, which will be released in April.

    In a sense, the kernel *is* the operating system. The rest is "just" a layer around it. This layer needs to be finely tuned and adjusted to the kernel, otherwise all kinds of things will go horribly wrong. C'est la vie...

    If you have a lot of "panache" and fear no bugs, you might go for the alpha 2 release of Raring, which will be released in a month:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RaringRingtail/ReleaseSchedule

    But if you prefer to act as your signature says, you'll wait until April.

    En tout cas: bonne chance!

    Eh bien puisque c'est comme ça ... c'est parti !
    Downgrading in progress, let's get back to the real thing. I'm not as audacious as I may think, so I will wait and try Raring when it's gonna be available.
    Merci pour ces précieux conseils !
    Thanks for your help and your nice (french) words !

    Damned !
    I'm screwed ...
    Revert back to kernel 3.5 changes nothing, problem still arises plus I have searched for a firmware (hoping it could help) with no avail.
