MakeMKV can't recognize my drive. It did work before, but I have reinstalled since then. I can mount my drive (/dev/sr0) and see the files on the disk, but MakeMKV can't see it. Is this a bug in the latest version or do I have some missing dependencies to install?

EDIT: Running "sudo modprobe sg" fixes the issue.

Please add ccextractor as an optional dependency (runtime) that is used to extract CC streams from some DVD media. Not sure this needs to be added to default, but ~/.MakeMKV/settings.conf needs the path for it.

Not sure why I didn't need that for previous versions but it works fine now after that. Thank you!

Yes, that's strange indeed. The message is shown every time you install makemkv. And yes, my device is also /dev/srX, but I did the same and everything works again. Just try it.

@Marcel_K I don't recall seeing that anywhere. And you say that starting from 1.10.8, but would I not have already been past that version when I used the program and it worked just fine a month ago before the 1.14.2 update?

Also my device is a /dev/srX, not a /dev/sgX. Is the process similar?

Marcel_K commented on 2018-12-26 12:26

Did you read this after installation?

Starting from 1.10.8 the /dev/sgX device that corresponds to the drive is required. You may have to load the sg kernel module in order to create the device. To enable module autoloading run the following command as root and reboot:

echo sg > /etc/modules-load.d/sg.conf

Anyone else having issues where it won't detect the optical drive? It worked just fine a month ago (which would have been before the latest update) but now it no longer works, and I've had to downgrade to an earlier version.

Added patch from gentoo ebuild.

I stand corrected, indeed: the package owner should patch the sources in prepare() and push a new release.
