I have a bluray drive on a recent arch installation that's not detected even though I am a member of the optical group. Even running under sudo does not help.

It just says
Code:
the program cannot find any usable optical drives.

Is there a verbose flag or something so I can understand what's actually going on? I can mount (/dev/sr0) and watch dvds using it in mplayer.

What I discovered when I had this issue was that the default Installation folder was "C:/Program Files (x86)" (32 bit install folder)

Looking at task manager I saw this process running;
MakeMKV application (32 bit)

Since I am running a Windows 10 64 bit, I changed the install folder to "C:/Program Files" (64 bit install folder) and that seems to have fixed the issue,
as long as you run as administrator.

Looking at task manager I now see these processes running;
MakeMKV application (32 bit)
MakeMKV console Application (Properties indicate this process is associated with makemkvcon64.exe)

I am on Linux. My problem was I was missing the sg kernel module. A modprobe sg, sorted it out.
