Thanks James,

dmesg | grep hdc returns empty :-\ In fact I can't even find any
reference to the drive in dmesg. At this point all I am interested in
doing is being able to mount the drive to view the files on a cd or play
music cd's on it.  I can worry with how to burn stuff later if this
makes the process any easier.
