Hi.

I'm trying to play a regular DVD on my internal Mac DVD drive using the latest MC29 build (demo). MC doesn't show any drives - DVD internal or Bluray external. Am I missing something? In the "Drives & Devices" tab there is just a graphic of a gear...no drives listed.

Your help would be great. For me, it's nearly the perfect player...if I can get this to work.

Thanks.

MC currently supports DVD/BD media only on the windows platform.

Talked about it this morning.
It's very tied into windows API now in MC so it would be a pretty big project.

I am thinking of buying Apple DVD drive for ripping CDs. Can JRiver play CDs from this Apple drive under M1 Mac Mini with Monterey ?

Any ordinary optical drive should work for CD ripping.

My Asus Blue Ray Drive also isn't seen by MC29 in my desktop.
I am using Linux Mint...thought that was why but now see it's not just me or my machine.
Also, I just paid for MC30 Master License. I've been using MC since MC10 or thereabouts.
I REALLY hope this issue is resolved....Audiophiles STILL like to rip CD's! :(

CD ripping hasn't been implemented yet in MC for Linux.
