Connecting external DVDRW drive via USB to Pine64
#1
Hi,

Using my Pine64 1GB model as a media center, running the latest Android 6 build from the Wiki.
When connecting the drive, the ES file explorer recognizes it as a disk on key, but can't see any files (even if I have a music CD inside the drive before connecting it to the Pine).  
Are there special USB drivers I need to download? Some recommended app?

Thanks in advance.

Music CD is raw data, you will not see the file. I have not play back music CD for some period of time and no idea which app still support music CD.

Ummm what do you mean by format? It's a new LG GP65NB60 Portable DVD writer. It can handle both + and - formats...

I apologise, my brain automatically assumed HDD or SSD ... completely don't know about DVD drives.
