Re: SUMMARY: Yes, 6-disk CDROM readers are available

Can anyone comment on how the drivers for these disks handle the
multiple platters? Are there just 6 different device files, and the
mount command picks the corresponding platter?

Some of the optical R/W jukeboxes have drivers that let you mount the
whole device, map it to multiple mount points, with autochanging on
reference (sometimes with caching on hard disk).

Do any of the drives come with software that make the changer useful as
network resource by NFS?
