I bought a new external Blu-ray / DVD drive (LG WH16NS40) connected via USB and can not get it to work on my Ubuntu 18.04 computer. It works perfectly on my old Windows 7 laptop.
This is what Disk Utility looks like when I select the drive: https://i.imgur.com/X5tcb4G.png.
These are the things I tried after I googled:
- Some people recommended doing
lshw -C diskto see if the drive is listed, but this only depends on & # 39; SCSI & # 39; when the drive is plugged in and nothing is output. When I do
lshw -C diskImmediately after plugging in the drive, however, it works:
*-cdrom description: DVD-RAM writer product: BD-RE WH16NS40 vendor: HL-DT-ST physical id: 0.0.0 bus info: scsi@3:0.0.0 logical name: /dev/sr0 version: 1.03 capabilities: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd dvd-r dvd-ram configuration: status=ready *-medium physical id: 0 logical name: /dev/sr0
But if I do it again a second later, it hangs.
If I pull the plug out of the socket The drive will display this error message (& # 39; Color of Paradise & # 39; is the name of the movie): https://i.imgur.com/ZbrXadZ.png.
ejectdoes not work and also hangs when the drive is plugged in
Someone said something about the region that was not fixed and had to be done
sudo regionsetbut that depends …
Sometimes the disc appears, but MakeMKV hangs when scanning "CD-ROM devices". When the drive is scanned, it will always hang when loading the CD. (The same CD worked on the Windows computer.)
Sometimes the drive does not even appear in the Disk Utility and I need to restart it.
Any help would be appreciated.
