This article describes the setup of an internal optical drive like CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray drives.
To choose the right driver, first detect the used storage controller. lspci can be used for this task:
lspci | grep --color -E "IDE|SATA"
Activate the following kernel options:
Device Drivers ---> <*> Serial ATA and Parallel ATA drivers ---> [*] ATA ACPI Support # If the drive is connected to a SATA Port Multiplier: [*] SATA Port Multiplier support # Select the driver for the SATA controller, e.g.: <*> AHCI SATA support (ahci) # If the drive is connected to an IDE controller: [*] ATA SFF support [*] ATA BMDMA support # Select the driver for the IDE controller, e.g.: <*> Intel ESB, ICH, PIIX3, PIIX4 PATA/SATA support (ata_piix) SCSI device support ---> <*> SCSI device support <*> SCSI CDROM support <*> SCSI generic support File systems ---> CD-ROM/DVD Filesystems ---> <M> ISO 9660 CDROM file system support [*] Microsoft Joliet CDROM extensions [*] Transparent decompression extension <M> UDF file system support
Filesystems can be mounted in several ways:
- mount - Command for mounting file systems
- fstab - Automatic mount at boot time.
- removable media - Mount on demand.
- AutoFS - Automatic mount on demand.
