Is it still there after reboot?

Absolutely. Since I have no access to BIOS settings to put the computer to sleep, I reboot every day. And there's not a trace of /dev/dvd , only /dev/dvd1 and /dev/dvdrw1, which are both links to /dev/sr0.

When you don't have problems, it's not the kind of settings you check closely but, since my dvd players were pointing to /dev/dvd, I would think this is the normal setting.

I believe the devices are created at boot time, no? And I even have no idea how I could prevent /dev/dvd form being created.

Fedora version?
