• System only detects one DVD drive?


    It seems that my system is only detecting one drive (sr0) as you can see here: [http://i.imgur.com/EZ6lJGp.png][0]">[http://i.imgur.com/EZ6lJGp.png][1]
    [http://i.imgur.com/XqsiLAW.png][0]">[http://i.imgur.com/XqsiLAW.png][2] - I wanted to take a picture of what shows up but gnome-screenshot doesn’t capture that. Basicaly I can only identify as:

    • Drive name
    • /dev/cdrom
    • /dev/sr0

    There’s no option to identify it as sr1.
    It does seem to detect sr1, though, as you can see on the top but only sr0 actually reads and mounts disks - [u:26kxn1vp]sr1 doesn’t detect empty disks and mounts disks with content as folders[/u:26kxn1vp], I believe.

    When I ran [inxi[/url:26kxn1vp] I noticed that sr1 doesn’t have a dev-link:

      
    Optical-1: /dev/sr0 model: ASUS DRW-2014L1T rev: 1.00 dev-links: cdrom  
    Features: speed: 48x multisession: yes audio: yes dvd: yes rw: cd-r,cd-rw,dvd-r,dvd-ram state: running  
    Optical-2: /dev/sr1 model: ASUS DRW-2014L1T rev: 1.02 dev-links: N/A  
    Features: speed: 48x multisession: yes audio: yes dvd: yes rw: cd-r,cd-rw,dvd-r,dvd-ram state: running  
    
    

    I proceeded to check /dev/ and indeed there’s only one cdrom link to sr0 while sr1 doesn’t seem to have any, unless i’m missing something - [http://i.imgur.com/crjmUM5.png][4] (ignore the cinnarch partition, that’s a very old one that I haven’t used since Antergos released

    I actaully have no idea if missing the dev-link is a problem as I’m just guessing but the matter of fact is that sr1 doesn’t work properly and the only burning software I can get to recognise both drives properly is xfburn - I can’t use any other software to burn disks.
    As usual any help would be appreciated

    I remember in the past days of cinnarch both drives working fine and detected properly. This is either a more recent, general Arch bug or the Antergos installation messed up somewhere - I installed this some months ago, I think around october or something.][3]

  • Hi,

    What is your system make/model? Try manually creating a link like this:

    sudo ln -s /dev/sr1 /dev/dvd
    

    That would at least allow you to know if the problem has anything to do with the links (it wont persist after reboot)

    Cheers!

    I created the link but everything’s still the same - sr1 doesn’t mount empty disks and mounts disks with content as something else other than a disk (i’m guessing a folder).
    We have to go deeper!

  • I noticed that the drive that works has an older firmware version than the one that does not work. I found this report of similar issue with the 1.02 firmware: [http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/246079-32-asus-2014l1t-firmware-fail][0]">[http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/24607][1] … mware-fail Hopefully that will get you looking in the right direction

    Cheers!

  • I don’t think that’s the problem. Like I said, in the days of GNOME 3.6 both drives would be detected normally. Besides that, xfburn and Virtual Box detect both drives and of course Windows works fine.
    There’s an intriguing behaviour though. I inserted a disk into sr0 and then clicked the unmount option in nautilus - can you guess what happened? It “unmounted” sr1, opening sr1 tray, which was empty.

    I’m guessing the system is confused as to which one is which because they both have the same exact name o_O
