ROCK rips CD only after restart

I’m using an 8th gen i5 NUC with 1TB SSD for local storage. I’ve also got a £20 USB optical drive for ripping new CDs to my library. It all works fine but I have to restart the NUC each time for it to rip the disk.

Is there a setting I need to change or ask ROCK to watch the USB drive, what is the drive called if so?

Any help appreciated!
