CD/DVD Drive not operating/Error opensSUSE 11.3 GNOME

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501, my internal DVD/CD Drive is not working properly in openSUSE. When I load a CD or DVD, the computer opens dozens of windows in the panel and I get the following error: CANNOT MOUNT “Blank CD or DVD” DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending. I can boot with the live cd so I know it is not a hardware problem. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
