Question Debian sees only the first drive of my 6 disk cd swapper Teac CD-C68E

Has just bought an old Teac CD-C68E cd changer for 2$ and I would like to use all the six drives but debian can't see all just the first.
After searching I only found a page of a suse article in which a suse package named "cdload" solved the problem.
After that I searched the debian repo but they don't have that package.
Tryed to search globally, yet no luck. I'm not only interested in that package but everything that makes that oldie working.

Here's a spec page of that cd-r.

Maybe it's very simple to solve but I'm in trouble to find it out.

Would be grateful for your advice:

Got the answer!

The tool eject integrates a command for swapping disks.

First of all go to superuser or use sudo and start with:
umount /dev/sr0
eject -v -cX /dev/sr0
Where X is the number of the disk slot of the changer. (0 means the 1st slot, 1 means the 2nd....)
And of course in my case the device has named "sr0" but others may vary.

After that I had to mount it
mount /dev/sr0 /home/adam/changer
I hope it helps others.
