I recycled an old Zyxel NAS with current OpenWrt and got it to work with 4TByte disk for use as media center. Now I tried to add (aka mount) an external CD ROM drive via USB to speed up the transfer of my CD ROM collection to the NAS - and here I fail. I proceeded according to mount the HD drive, added some recommended drivers, I know the mount point (sr0) - however the device keeps showing als "not present".
Any hint to proceed?
opkg list-installed | grep iso | grep kmod
opkg list-installed | grep usb
I tried to mount the CD ROM as /mnt/cdrom
root@OpenWrt:~# ls /mnt/cdrom _Not_Mounted_ root@OpenWrt:~# ls /dev/sr0 /dev/sr0

opkg install kmod-fs-isofs
opkg install usbutils
mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom; mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom; ls /mnt/cdrom
note: some platforms need one or some of
funny your hard drive work without at least one of them... maybe my ignorance or perhaps list-installed wont show built-ins or something.
now it seems to work fine - the kernel module and the usbutils were missing. Thanks for your help. The HD is connected via SATA, therefor no need for USB.
