Subject description: External usb drive not showing up in Precise Puppy 5.4
 

Dear all,

I have an external USB DVD drive by HP, model dvd550s-H03 8. It does not show up in my Precise puppy 5.4 running from a USB pen drive. Any advice for me ?

Many thanks,
Ashim

I've seen this as well on many puppylinux version , it needs to have media in it, and you may need to press the eject button and push it close to wakeup the DVD player, then puppylinux can tell something is there. I do not think its really a puppylinux issue, my drive turns itself off if left with nothing to do.

BTW, this has been a great drive for me and it will load even faster on a USB3 port, I never saw it list USB3 support in its docs, mine was made in 2009 and multisession DVDs perfectly for years.
