I was experimenting with an external optical drive connected via USB
today and while it I had no trouble accessing it via the shell (well, at
least after a friend helped me out) I was a bit surprised that it didn't
show up in the Journal. When I connect my USB thumbdrive it shows up all
right, I can copy/paste, view its contents, unmount, etc.
Now I was wondering whether there are any plans to also integrate
external optical drives like that? I think it might make sense in some
situations, especially where contents might already be available in the
form of optical media.
Thanks in advance,
