[SOLVED] Ext USB Optical DVD Drive not being detected.

Post by outlaw » Sat Jun 22, 2019 7:21 am

Hello, I have an LG USB ext dvd drive m trying to use on this DELL laptop but its not being detected.

Code: Select all

$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1bcf:28aa Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04f3:036e Elan Microelectronics Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0483:91d1 STMicroelectronics Sensor Hub
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 8087:0a2a Intel Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 152d:1561 JMicron Technology Corp. / JMicron USA Technology Corp. JMS561U two ports SATA 6Gb/s bridge
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 058f:6254 Alcor Micro Corp. USB Hub
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 25a7:fa23  
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
It powers up when its plugged in and has worked recently on another computer (not with arcolinux unfortunately)
Ive done alot of googling thats turned up very little, although some mention of udev rules? Any help would be appreciated.

I have also tried

Code: Select all

udevadm monitor -u
plugged and unplugged with no new output.

What is on there?
Does it have a specific formatting system on it?

What is on your harddisk? mac formatting, windows formatting, ...

If you hook it up to windows/mac or anything else you may have, what happens then.

Not to alarm you but you need to know if it is not broken.

Can you test that somehow?

Im running Arcolinux(ext hdd) on one drive, Manjaro(internal hdd) on another and I have an ext hdd formatted NTFS for storage. The DVD drive works, Ive used in ubuntu and windows but I don(t have any of those set up right now. Its only been a couple mos since it was used last. when its plugged in here, the light comes on it spins up but Arcolinux is not detecting that its plugged in.

Can you hook up the external drive to something else and confirm it is not broken.

A light does not mean anything I am afraid.

alright... Cable was bad. new cable and is working just fine. Weird... I just used the device with that cable a couple mos ago.

HDMI works fine, never had issue with that.

Thanks Eric for responding, Im sure you have better things to do than remind us about cables.
