Hmm. Quite some time ago we had such a drive here. If I remember correctly,
the selection of the CDs from the various slots was indeed done via the LUN.
If they didn't change the firmware, it's quite likely that using the "ch"
driver will not help.
Sorry for not being more specific, and not being able to provide a solution :-(.
