hi,

my system is gentoo 64 bit. i have a usb cd-rom. i plugged it in, and dmesg shows it had recognized the device. but i could not find any cdrom like device under /dev. also k3b says it cannot find any optical device.

i checked my kernel settings against https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/CDROM, and i thin i have everything needed enabled.

any idea what i might missing?

What dev manager are you using? Assumiong (e)udev It sounds like the device node isn't being created properly. Here is an example on Ubuntu from 2012.

I suggest you focus your debug efforts in that direction. Look for any new device in /dev. I like to pipe the output of ls /dev to a file before and another file after I plug in a device and then diff the files. Alternatively comparing output on the command line works as well.

davidshen84,

Is USB storage on in your kernel?

To extend on Neddy's line of questioning, please pastebin your kernel configuration. Do not post it inline; it will be truncated. Please also provide the output of lsusb -v. You may need to emerge --noreplace app-text/wgetpaste sys-apps/usbutils for wgetpaste and lsusb, respectively.
