I’ve been trying to connect my USB-CDRom to Volumio, thinking i could use it as a plain USB Drive.
I’m not trying to read an audio CD (i’ve been folowing the CD player plugin thread in that regard), just access the files from a CD-R, DVD-R or BD-R, basically a bunch of Flac files.
I naively expected the operation to be plug and play, and that the drive would be treated and auto-mounted just like a plain USB or HDD drive attached to the RaspberryPi
While it is recognized with lsusb, nothing appears in Volumio.
I’ve tested the drive successfully under Raspbian Stretch, where it was immediately auto mounted, with its content accessible.
The Drive uses a split USB cable. I’ve been feeding it power using a power bank on the second USB. (i know the power drain would have been too much for my Raspberry 3B+ and its touchscreen display.)
Maybe i’ve been doing it wrong, or need a few additional packages into Volumio for this to work, edit mpd.conf, or this simply cannont be done.
The drive model is a Storeva slim Burner U3 (again perfectly recognized and useable with Raspbian)
Any help apreciated.
