Seems to be a common problem, but as newbie I haven't managed to solve the problem.

Steps to follow to mount the usb bluray drive automatically?

Open your Synaptic Package Manager and search for autofs if not installed install it or open your terminal and use the following code

sudo apt-get install autofs

thks for quick response :D

Steps

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install autofs
Restarted

Code: Select all

mkdir /mnt/mydrive
mount /dev/sr1 /mnt/mydrive
then:

Code: Select all

VLC>Media>Disc>Bluray>No disc menus>Disc device>/dev/sr1>Play
and it works!!

:D :D

Now I would like to be able to :
1. change discs - eg bluray DVD to CD-DVD or vice versa
2. be able to remove/replace the USB drive

:?: I can do all this using the Terminal, but would appreciate any help to do this automatically -
to connect USB disk, to start VLC and play DVD/Bluray, remove the drive, etc.
