3. eject disk
4. inseret disk
1. can't read disk

I had a similar problem on my Windows box until I installed Adaptec's ASPI drivers.
I see some similar reports for FC2 and FC3, but not for RHEL4.
This looks like duplicate of bug 136665. Check (under Windows) if the disc is
fixated. Try to fixate it under Windows (sometimes also called "close session"
or "close disc" in some GUIs). If you can read the disc after that, than this
is duplicate of 136665.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal
