Default Optical Drive

Post by deerewright »

Is there a way to set a default drive for MakeMKV? I have an internal and an external. The external is faster and UHD official. I would like makemkv to load up the external as the default, but the way it works now, it loads up the internal first.

I am using this on a Linux (Ubuntu) server.

You can change which drive is being looked at with the "Source" pull-down on the main window. And with a second drive, you can select "Ask for single-drive mode", which will then prompt for which drive to use on start-up.

I don't see the option for "Ask for single-drive mode".
I am using the linux version if that matters.

It is on the IO tab in Preferences (on my macOS version anyway).
