Lost the CD drive

Hi,

I used to have a working CD(RW) drive, I've installed the OS with it! It's connected to VIA IDE primary (unit 0), with no other devices there. But at some point I had to reset UBoot settings, and after that it hasn't been recognized under OS4. It does show up in UBoot, no matter how many 'ide reset' I do, and it does work in debian as well (although I didn't try writing). What did I forget? I've looked at the env variables again and again. a1ide.device sits in devs: as always.

a1ide.device should be in SYS:Kickstart, otherwise the drives cannot be found until the kickstart has been loaded.

None of the AmigaOS installers put that device in Devs:, so I'm not sure what has happened here. More information would be handy, like which OS version you have, and how did you install it.

One thing, some apps look in the icon info for a CD unit number, that one always gets me.

Indeed, NOT devs:! I must have been dreaming.

This is 4.0 final, a1ide.device is 52.1. I've mostly used idetool to see whether the drive is picked up, but I suppose I should try actual media in case I missed something.
