Take a look at the compatability database here for an idea of what is known to work.

There is a firmware issue with some of the LG CD drives.

The affected LG drives are not entirely ATAPI compliant.

Please be sure to either update your firmware or to confirm
the LG drive you have is not one of the problematic drives
before you load Linux.

Read these threads:
1. Mandrake forum
2. Mandrake Linux notice

I would expect the problematic drives would end up non-functional
with any distro if they have not had their firmware updated.
