Volumio 3: USB CD Drive compatability

Hi, I have an Apple USB CD drive that I use with my Mac Mini for burning copying CD’s to storage. Will this or any other USB CD drive work with V3 on a R Pi 4? is an unpublished plug in required?

Apple SuperDrive works out of the box with RPi4 (+ payed Volumio subscription)

Have a search … there was a fairly recent post here about cd drive compatibility.

Thanks for the reply. I must be doing something wrong. The pi doesn’t not recognize the drive.

Still have issues with getting CD player to work, player will not accept disk. USB does not appear to recognize USB drive , running Manifest, premium subscription plan (works fine on other devices). Does the drive need to be connected when the initial firmware load take place? BTW: the drive worked with the hardware prior to V3 release. Ant help is appreciated.

Best thing to do now: start with the CD unplugged, boot your PI, plug in the CD player and then create a system log.
Howto: Send a log
Please post the link to the log file here.

A belated thank you for your reply. I’ll create the log as you suggested. In the meantime I hooked up a USB drive to the Pi-4 and have the CD hooked to a separate MAC which saves to the USB drive. The volumio software indexes and plays the music files just fine. Thanks again…

I have the same issue and uploaded a log.

It fails to turn on the Superdrive with the “magic” code.
There has been a previous report see Superdrive and powered USB hub.
Make sure the PI can deliver enough power, try it on a USB 3 port or use a powered hub.

It is on a USB-3 (blue) port. This worked under Volumio 2.x with Nanosound CD.

I just ordered a powered USB hub to see if it helps…Due to arrive on 1/7.

I have slightly changed the topic title to include Volumio 3

Any updates on this?

I gave up trying. I bought a USB powered HUB, no change. For now, Ill just continue ripping the CDs in my MAC and drop the files in a shared folder. -Mitch
