    I'm running 7.2-stable. Whenever I load the cdrom I get the
    following error message on the console:
    Code:
    acd0: FAILURE - unknown CMD (0x03) ILLEGAL REQUEST asc=0x20 ascq=0x00 

    This repeats over and over again, I assume as hald polls the
    device. I can stop the message with the command
    Code:
    # hal-disable-polling --device /dev/acd0

    This seems like a hack. I am wondering what is causing this,
    if my "fix" is reasonable, and if there is a better - perhaps
    automated way to do this.

    Thanks,
    Mike Gass
