External DVD Drive Support

  • Hi Guys,

    I've recently brought a cheap unbranded external DVD drive primarily for use on a laptop, out of curiosity I plugged it into my MXQ 905X box to see if it was detected, unfortunately it didn't appear to be, certainly I could see no discs when inserted...

    On my RPi 3 it is detected as 13fd:1040 (initio corporation inic-1511l pata bridge).

    Could anyone tell me or show me where to look to see if this chipset is supported by LibreElec / AMLogic ?

    Many Thanks !

  • I'm also interested in useing an external DVD drive.

    Isn't it working out of the box?

    Is there a way to use it?


  • I tried my laptop's optical drive and worked well without any setup.
