sg3-utils armhf, stretch and mounting 2 superdrives problem



  • so i installed stretch version of sg3-utils on my raspberry pi 3 b+ so i could mount my 2 apple superdrives like i had on jessie. i assume the armhf version is correct and not arm64 or armel as i found other files in the/usr/bin/ folder that were armhf files.

    so the issue i have is i have .sh files to mount the drives sr0 and sr1 to /media/cdrom0/ and /media/cdrom1/. in the /etc/udev/99-local.rules file i have this:

    ACTION=="add", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1500", ATTRS{idVendor}=="05ac", DRIVERS=="usb", RUN+="/usr/bin/sg_raw /dev/$kernel EA 00 00 00 00 00 01"
    

    now if i have both drives hooked up, if i try to mount even one drive with:

    sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0
    

    it will lock up the pi until i unplug both drives. i can plug in both pi's and eject the disk from both drives no problems with:

    sudo eject /dev/sr0
    sudo eject /dev/sr1
    

    does anyone know why it is not working properly on stretch? i use real discs on dosbox and i cant eject the disc and swap to the next disc if i needed to. and i mount both disc drives so when it needs the second disc it loads it from the other drive. they are also both built into my system so i have no desire to use just one. thank you.
