Orange Pi Zero Plus (H5) Optical drive issues

Recommended Posts

Armbianmonitor:

I had a rather crazy idea (in my opinion) of trying to hook up a bluray drive to an Orange Pi Zero Plus that i have a spare of, then possibly set that up as an iscsi target with LiO to create a network attached BD drive. However, I'm already stuck even getting the BD drive to work with the OPi in the first place.

I have the optical drive hooked to an externally powered USB 2.0 to ATA bridge (has a SATA port on it as well, this hardware config was tested in windows and worked great) and that's plugged into the single USB port on the board.

The problem i seem to be having (not entirely sure I'm correct, very new at this) is that sr_mod is not enabled or present. The system is detecting the USB to ATA adapter, and even detecting the optical drive correctly, it would seem.

 

dmesg output on USB insertion:

[ 561.628711] usb 6-1: new full-speed USB device number 2 using ohci-platform

[ 561.847735] usb 6-1: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub

[ 561.859738] usb 6-1: New USB device found, idVendor=152d, idProduct=2338, bcdDevice= 1.00

[ 561.859753] usb 6-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=5

[ 561.859765] usb 6-1: Product: USB to ATA/ATAPI bridge

[ 561.859774] usb 6-1: Manufacturer: JMicron

[ 561.859784] usb 6-1: SerialNumber: 226049900871

[ 561.866051] usb-storage 6-1:1.0: USB Mass Storage device detected

[ 561.866613] scsi host0: usb-storage 6-1:1.0

[ 562.875827] scsi 0:0:0:0: CD-ROM hp BD B DH8E2L 8HD9 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0

[ 562.876609] scsi 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 5

 

So its detecting it, and assigning it as a generic SCSI device sg0, which I cannot mount anywhere. I think what i need is for it to set it as "sr1" or something, but im not sure the driver to do that is present.

Anyone have any advice on how i can get the BD drive working? Is this just too crazy to even try?

Probably support is missing in the kernel. We recently enable a lot of drivers - go to armbian-config -> system and switch to nightly updates. Reboot, then try again.

Moved to nightly build, this is the new dmesg ouput:

[  141.892252] usb 3-1: new high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-platform
[  142.049609] usb 3-1: New USB device found, idVendor=152d, idProduct=2338, bcdDevice= 1.00

[  142.051814] scsi host0: usb-storage 3-1:1.0
[  142.100164] usbcore: registered new interface driver uas
[  143.059706] scsi 0:0:0:0: CD-ROM            hp       BD  B  DH8E2L    8HD9 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0
[  143.060728] scsi 0:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg0 type 5

Although there is a new line referring to a driver, there does not appear to be anything new in /dev, and it appears to still be setting the drive as a generic scsi sg0.
