My computer has two DVD-ROM drives a TOSHIBA DVD-ROM and a PLEXTOR DVD-R.The problem is that in most programs (such as Xine) there can be only one (like Highlander
) device specified for audio-cd or dvd playback. Usually this is /dev/cdrom or /dev/dvd which point to the appropriate block device. This is totally impractical because
A. I have to remember stupid things like "Audio Cds in plextor" "film DVDs in toshiba"
B. In case the specified device is in use I have to either ln the /dev/dvd with the free device or change the application settings (or maybe wait for the job to be completed...)
Currently I am looking for a way to make my programs understand that there might be more than one CD/DVD drive in my pc. Any help appreciated because I'm starting to miss the preconfigured mountpoints of windoz (I'm visiting a doctor one of these days).
