    USB storage devices that follow the USB Mass Storage specs and have
    their device IDs in the usb_storage module's database are supported.
    Almost every USB DVD+-RW should be supported.

    EXPN "sb", plz, k thx. (N dnt abbrvte yr wrds lk that.)

    [ much snippage, uhci_hcd, ohci_hcd, ehci_hcd are loaded successfully ]

    [ repeat this message ]

    This means trouble. Fedora is a permanent rolling beta and so has tons
    of bugs. This may be one of them. You may want to check the output of
    dmesg for more info.

    OK, this is what you need for the DVD+-RW to work.

    ....and this indicates a problem with the device. There's not enough
    info to diagnose that problem. Which version of the kernel are you
    using? What are the device IDs for this DVD+-RW? (Find out with
    lsusb.) Is this device bus-powered, or does it have an external power
    supply? IIRC, most externally-powered USB devices must be plugged in to
    their power source before being plugged in to the USB master. Plugging
    those things into the USB port before the power port can cause Undefined
    Behavior.
