If SET_DMA fails with an "operation not permitted", I think that's a known thing with RedHat. I don't remember for sure, but I think if you add an options line to your modules.conf and rerun depmod -a, you can get the hdparm -d option to take.

Well in my spare time this weekend I swapped DVD drives with a friend, his player ran just fine on my computer, and it's slower, and older. Just to make sure it was my drive we put my drive in his computer, it skipped more than a giddy school girl....

Thanks for all the help guys!!
