BL5.0 64bit - How to mount DVD drive at boot-up?


When I boot into BL 5.0, I don't see my DVD drive (a burner).
There's Xfburn installed and I also installed Brasero.

Now, when I open Brasero, the drive is found, but Xfburn does not find it.

How come and what can I do about it, please?

2nd question:

Shouldn't this drive be displayed in PCmanFM, on the left pane called "Locations" (or "Places")?

It should be seen like any other storage media, ie hdd, usb stick etc...

where is it being mounted at, /run/... or /media ?

is it a enclosed dvd, in other words mounted in your box, and connected to the motherboard player, or a plugged in one via usb port?

Brasero: is gui, It probably has it written within it to search for a drive when you start it.
Xburn: it might not be so robust to do this.

lsblk to see if it is being seen by your system before opening any software. So it can give you a cue to what your system is doing with it before you try to access it.

dmesg and grep it for key words to see if you can find it in there.

blkid to see if system is seeing it prior to trying to access it.


I'll leave the rest up to the Bodhi kidds on the block. It is their toy.

Filesystems i.e. the data disk itself is mounted not the physical drive. Typically if you insert a data disk into the DVD drive it will be automatically mounted and you will see the cdrom icon under places in the file browser. When you unmount or eject the disk the icon will be removed. Filesystems not hardware are displayed under places.

While xfburn checks for the existence of a burner when the application starts, brasero does not. You should be able to look at the output of the dmesg command to see if the burner is being recognized. Something like the following.

Code:
 dmesg | grep sr
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 48x/48x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
Is this the only operating system installed? If not is the drive recognized as a burner in the other operating systems?

preferences -> layout -> show in places -> devices gives me a "Devices" entry in pcmanfm under Places. my dvd drive shows up on that list, but usually doesn't show under places itself unless i have a dvd in.

makes sense. i wasn't aware of the following, but it certainly explains the lack of icon.

lsblk on mine shows the dvd drive as sr0.

There are two other systems installed, Xubuntu 18.04.2, which I still have to configure, once I'm done with the configuration of Bodhi, and Win 10 Pro. All of them are 64 bit.
The dmesg command finds the drive and (@ cordx) when I add Devices to the left pane, the drive is also present there.
So, I guess, it's true, probably, I do have to add a DVD into that drive in order to make it visible for Xfburn.

I assume the error message is "No burners are currently available"

dmesg finds the drive but does the output confirm that it is a writer? If so then the error lies elsewhere. Without a disk inserted xfurn should still start normally. As suggested make sure there isn't a disk already in the drive and that your user is in the cdrom group.

This is the output of the dmesg command:

Code:
dmesg | grep sr
[    0.000000] esrt: Reserving ESRT space from 0x000000009bf8c118 to 0x000000009bf8c150.
[    2.345230] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
[    2.345358] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
[    2.345452] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5
Looks like the drive is recognized as a burner, isn't it?

EDIT:
I just found the drive inside Xfburn, too.
The drive is mentioned in Settings -> Devices.

Don't know, why I didn't find this the first time.

Yes it is...
My writer is a USB device as sr1 and xfburn found it without changing any settings. But looks like you got it working.
