DVD drive problem after upgrade to Solaris 10

After upgrading to solaris 10 (from sol 8) on a SUN Blade 1500, it seems that the dvd/cd-rom does not accept dvds nor cds in the dvd drive.

After I insert a dvd/cd in the drive, the disk is simply ejected (!)

Is it possible that the upgrade made the system not being able to recognize these media?

Is automountd running? If it is, I'd be interested to see if the media will stay in the drive after disabling automountd.

I did:
svcadm enable smserver

and it at least mounted it on /cdrom

I was told that this is an older bug so I am lookign for the latest Sol 10 patches.

Thanks for your reply,
