I'm not sure if I'm understanding you, but here goes. If you haven't tried borrowing someone else's cdrom drive, removing both of yours, and trying it with theirs, do that. If that doesn't work (same Knoppix IO error), try a different IDE cable (it also wouldn't hurt to try an 80 conductor AND a 40 conductor). If that doesn't work, it sounds like your motherboard's IDE controller has flown the coop. Hope this helps!
