That's pretty normal Paul, as most of the entries are created in /dev by udev,
at bootup time, then when you shutdown, those entries cease to exist. So a
symlink will not hold over a reboot. I think you'd need to make some change
in udev itself to do what you want.

Do you have more than one optical drive on the machine? I have 3 optical
drives on one machine (cdrom, cdrom1, and cdrom2), and if I specify which one
to open the tray on with eject, I can open any of them.
eject (which as default opens the tray on cdrom)
eject cdrom (same as above)
I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but have a look at the man
page for eject.
Thanks, Nigel. I have only one optical drive.
Can I make
