Whoops! Yes, it should.
Now, that leads me to an idea. Maybe the DVD-drive is nor recognized as
a DVD-drive. Let's try it out: Boot your Computer with the external
drive connected an switched on. When Linux has booted, issue `cat
/proc/scsi/scsi/` on the command line.
If something like this shows up:
Host: scsi0 Channel: 00 Id: 02 Lun: 00
Vendor: PIONEER Model: DVD-ROM DVD-303F Rev: 1.10
Type: CD-ROM ANSI SCSI revision: 02
everything is okay, and we got to search for another reason. However, if
the type is "Direct-Access", then your DVD-drive is reported as a
harddisk. This might lead to the described effect.
