USB DVD Player no longer found

It stopped working after one of the updates a while ago (sorry, can’t remember last time I used it). My system does seem to see the device, but it doesn’t map it to /dev/sr0 or anything.

dmesg output:

Do you have the needed packages?

pacman -Qs libdvd

They appear to be installed.

local/libdvdcss 1.4.3-1
    Portable abstraction library for DVD decryption
local/libdvdnav 6.1.1-2
    Library to navigate DVD video disks
local/libdvdread 6.1.3-2
    Library for reading DVD video disks

With no other guesses I might try different kernels.
Maybe you have switched to a newer series in the interim and that is the difference?
If so … try booting into, ex, linux61 and checking the status there.

Hmm… that’s a good idea. I’m in 6.6, might try 6.1 after work today.
