    Is that a PATA cd-drive? If so, then you must have hooked it up
    to the JMicron IDE controller. That driver is just plain buggy.

    I gave up on it for my own P5B-VM. The libata version works better
    than the drivers/ide, but I gave up on it and got a SATA DVD/RW drive.

    Off topic: do your USB ports power off when the system shuts down?
    Mine don't -- the +5V continues on them.. I'd love a tip on how to
    turn them off completely at shutdown.
