Probably the same problem as cds. I have had *some* luck with 'xm 
block-{at,de}tach', but more so with img files than physical devices. 
Sometimes attaching an img file, then switching to a physical device works.

It would be interesting if you are getting a floppy mounted while your pv 
drivers are loaded, since I still cannot read a dvd with them loaded.
