Hello, I need to disable internal cdrom device and run as there is only one optical drive attached (external connected through USB). I can't find in documentation a way to disable libata attaching the undesired drive.

Any other options? udev?

Disable it from the bios or disconnect it. Libata is used for other devices.

If I only had this option! The laptop bios is very limited. btw I fixed my problem by physically detaching the device... I'm sure there is some udev magic that can be done but perhaps it would be harder than what I already did.. nm
